MIAMI – A woman alleges her disability benefits were wrongfully terminated after receiving them for nearly four years.
Kerri Boyle filed a complaint on Sept. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., doing business as First Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., citing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in September 2010, she became disabled and was initially being paid disability benefits until its termination on December 2014. The plaintiff holds Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny disability benefits to plaintiff despite still being disabled.
The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits, reinstatement and declare that plaintiff is entitled to receive disability benefits for as long as she remains disabled according to the terms of the plan, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Rachel Alters of Attorneys Dell and Schaefer, Chartered in Hollywood.
