American Airlines Retirement Benefit Program; Plan Administrator of the American Airlines, Inc. Pilot Retirement Benefit Program; American Airlines, Inc and claims that American Airlines “engaged in procedurally and substantively defective claims determinations to deny claims for benefits, including terminating benefits without receiving information that differed in any material way from the information American Airlines received when they determined that the claimant was disabled, purportedly in violation of the American Airlines, Inc. Pilot Retirement Benefit Program (the “Plan”) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), 29 USC § 1001”.
The case is in the jurisdiction of the United States Court of Arizona.
This is an action for disability benefits and to redress violations of ERISA’s claims procedure and disclosure requirements and breach of fiduciary duty under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”), 29 USC § 1001.
