Sixth Circuit at It Again: Orders Make-Whole Relief in Disability Benefit Claim
Robinson + Cole LLPLink to more items from this source
June 12, 2015

"If the Plan provided for an increase in benefits, then plaintiff has a 502(a)(1)(B) claim against MetLife (and no breach of fiduciary duty claim against anyone). If the Plan did not provide for an increase in benefits, then International Steel may have violated its fiduciary duty by issuing a misleading SPD, but MetLife's determination accurately interpreted the Plan. Put simply, the court's ruling that International Steel 'breached its duty by issuing a summary plan description that did not accurately reflect the terms of the plan,' compels the conclusion that MetLife accurately interpreted the Plan and upheld its fiduciary duty." [Stiso v. Intl. Steel Group, No. 15-0430 (6th Cir. June 9, 2015)]
