Disability Claimant Was Employee Of Company; Benefits Wrongfully Denied

SALT LAKE CITY - A disability insurer wrongfully denied a claim for long-term disability benefits because the claimant was still considered an employee of the company when his disability arose, a Utah federal judge said April 29 in finding that the insurer incorrectly determined that the employee was no longer insured under the company's disability plan (David G. Carlile v. Reliance Standard Insurance Co., et al., No. 17-1049, D. Utah, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 72687).
