Eleventh Circuit: Claim Barred by Statute of Limitations Even When Administrator Cannot Produce Denial Letter
Lane Powell PC Link to more items from this source
Dec. 8, 2014
"For 12 years [the employee] did not challenge the termination of benefits. Then, in 2009 [he] wanted to know where his benefits were. He claimed he never received the termination letter [issued in 1997].... MetLife's decision to cease providing benefit payments after April 30,1997, and for 12 years thereafter, constitutes 'clear and continuing repudiation of [the employee's] rights' ... By agreeing to review the terminated claim [in 2012], MetLife did not waive the statute of limitations defense.' " [Witt v. Met Life Ins. Co., No. 14-11349 (11th Cir. Nov. 25, 2014)]
