U.S. Supreme Court Affirms That MetLife's Conflict of Interest And Employee's SSD Award Supported Reversal of MetLife's Denial of LTD Benefits

Glenn, the Supreme Court of the United States held last month that a reviewing court should consider the conflict of interest arising from the dual role of an entity as an ERISA plan administrator and payer of plan benefits as a factor in determining whether the plan administrator has abused its discretion in denying benefits, with the significance of the factor depending upon the circumstances of the particular case, including an award of SSD benefits.
