The appellant challenges a summary judgment rendered in favor of Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and the Verizon Employee Benefits Committee on her claim that MetLife, acting on behalf of VEBC, improperly withheld long-term disability benefits to which she was allegedly entitled. The record shows a reasonable basis to support the calculation of the appellant's annual benefits compensation. Lump sum pension benefits elected by a participant and rolled over into an IRA constitute benefits "received" by the participant for purposes of an offset to a monthly LTD amount. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. Dallas Court of Appeals, No. 05-11-00678-CV, 05-10-2013.
