Disability Insurance

Robinson v. Aetna Life Ins. Co.

DeBofsky Law won two cases for our client. In the first, the court denied Aetna’s motion to dismiss, noting the plan did not address retroactive SSDI awards. The judge found Robinson’s claim was not time-barred due to her voluntary appeals. In the second, the court ruled the denial of benefits arbitrary and capricious due to Robinson’s retroactive SSDI award and found Aetna’s refusal to toll its review problematic.
