Disability Claimant Entitled To STD Benefits, Wisconsin Federal Judge Determines

MADISON, Wis. - A Wisconsin federal judge on Oct. 29 awarded a disability claimant short-term disability (STD) benefits after determining that a disability insurer failed to consider all of the job duties required of the claimant, rather than the modified job duties performed by the claimant, when it denied her claim for benefits (Catherine A. Mathews v. The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., No. 18-46, W.D. Wisc., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 186986).
