Notes / Description: 

Plntff., an employee of the Bemberg & Glanstorff Plants, is sued on a group health policy for $1100, the amount of her certificate, plus a $275 penalty. The $1100 was to be paid if the policy holder became permanently disabled, which she has, but deft. refuses to pay. Deft. argues that it owes Miller nothing as her insurance with it had terminated & was cancelled, she had failed to file due proof of her disability as required by the policy, & was not totally & permanently disabled.
