DOL's New Disability Claim Rules Add to a Plan Administrator's Duties Under Welfare and Retirement Benefit Plans
McDermott Will & EmeryLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Dec. 1, 2015
"These new proposed disability claim rules attempt to preserve all defenses available to benefit plans prior to ERISA benefit litigation.... These proposed rules would apply to any disability-based ERISA benefit claim, whether the claim arises under a welfare plan (e.g., a long-term or short-term disability plan) or a retirement plan (e.g., a disability retirement benefit under a pension plan).... The rules would require that plans not make hiring, compensation, promotion or termination decisions based upon a claim adjudicator candidate's propensity for denying disability benefits. Plans would also need to review a medical expert's professional qualifications rather than his/her reputation for outcomes in contested cases."
