District Court Correctly Found Disability Claimant Is Not Entitled To Benefits

NEW YORK - A disability claimant is not entitled to benefits under his former employer's disability plan because the claimant failed to show that he sustained a 20 percent or more reduction in income as a result of a disability or that there was a causal connection between his disability and the termination of his employment, the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed Dec. 13 (Joseph Sevely v. The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation Long Term Disability Plan, et al., No. 18-3247, 2nd Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 36854).
