ATLANTA - A disability insurer's denial of long-term disability benefits was not wrong because the disability claimant failed to prove that he was disabled from his own occupation throughout the entire elimination period as required by the disability policy, the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Nov. 22 in affirming a district court's judgment in favor of the insurer (Keyton Benson v. Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Co., No. 18-14835, 11th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 34810).
