This case presents a dispute concerning a short-term disability benefit plan offered my client’s employer, Federal Express Corporation (“FedEx”). When my client was injured at work, Aetna Life Insurance-the claims-paying administrator of the policy-denied Meguerditchian’s claim as untimely. As a result my client brought this action seeking recovery of benefits under Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) § 502(a)(1)(B). For the reasons discussed in the attached decision, the Court reversed the administrator’s denial of STD benefits claim as untimely and remanded the case to the claims-paying administrator for a decision on the merits.
