Federal Judge Remands LTD Claim To Administrator For New Determination

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A disability insurer must reconsider a long-term disability (LTD) claim after reviewing the claimant's Social Security disability benefits records because the insurer represented to the claimant that the Social Security records would be considered as part of the review of the claimant's appeal, an Arkansas federal judge said Oct. 18 in remanding the claim to the administrator (Michael Buquoi v. United States Life Insurance Co., No. 18-093, E.D. Ark., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 179172).
