MIAMI – A former JPMorgan Chase Bank employee alleges her claim for disability benefits was denied and not given a fair review.
Colleen Luchetti filed a complaint on March 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against The Prudential Insurance Co. of America alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she has been disabled since 2015 and that the defendant denied her claim for disability benefits in February 2016. The plaintiff holds The Prudential Insurance Co. of America responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to adequately describe to plaintiff any additional material or information necessary to perfect her claim, failed to properly and adequately investigate the merits of plaintiff's disability claim and failed to provide a full and fair review of the claim.
The plaintiff seeks payment of benefits due, costs, attorneys’ fees, interest and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Rachel Alters and Gregory Michael Dell of Attorneys Dell and Schaefer Chartered in Hollywood.
