Denial Of STD Benefits Was Not Arbitrary, Capricious, Michigan Federal Judge Says

DETROIT - The denial of a disability claimant's short-term disability (STD) claim was not arbitrary and capricious because the plan administrator provided a reasonable explanation for its denial of the claim and the claimant failed to prove that she could not perform the material duties of her own occupation, a Michigan federal judge said Aug. 20 (Mary Savage v. Quicken Loans and Affiliated Companies Welfare Benefits Plan, No. 18-12075, E.D. Mich., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 140709).
