Claimant Was Not Disabled Under Any-Occupation Standard, Panel Concludes

SAN FRANCISCO - A disability insurer did not abuse its discretion in terminating a claimant's long-term disability (LTD) benefits because the evidence supports the insurer's finding that the claimant was not totally disabled from performing the duties of any occupation, the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Jan. 16 (Dyel O. Talbot v. Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., et al., No. 18-15375, 9th Cir., 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 1657).
