|District Court Ruling in LTD Claim Holds ERISA Fiduciary Duty Lessons|
DeBofsky Sherman Casciari Reynolds P.C.
Nov. 10, 2021
"A recent federal court ruling ... admonished a disability insurer for accepting an employer's representations at face value rather than performing an independent investigation consistent with [ERISA's] fiduciary obligations.... The court's ruling went beyond the facts of the case, though, and offered a number of important lessons about ERISA's fiduciary duties[.]" [Host v. First Unum Life Ins. Co., No. 18-11504 (D. Mass. Oct. 28, 2021)]
