"ERISA plan administrators must consider Social Security Administration (SSA) disability determinations when making the disability benefit decision. ERISA plan administrators are not bound by the SSA's determination. But the benefit denial letter should provide an explanation why the SSA determination was not followed. Failure to provide that explanation raises questions whether the adverse benefits determination was 'the product of a principled and deliberative reasoning process.' So, it is always worthwhile to see the latest trends in disability findings from the Social Security Administration."
