Disability Insurer Did Not Breach Policy Terms, Judge Says In Dismissing Complaint

UTICA, N.Y. - A disability claimant's breach of contract suit must be dismissed because the disability insurer did not breach the terms of the long-term disability (LTD) policy when it terminated the claimant's benefits at age 65, a New York federal judge said Oct. 30, noting that the insurer paid the maximum period of payment per the terms of the policy (Vincent J. Krocka v. Mutual of New York Insurance Co., No. 18-830, N.D. N.Y., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 185173).
