In Hajdu v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, the court found: “Since, as a matter of law, [the insurer] did not breach the FEGLI contract by not paying benefits under [the] annuitant policy, no claim for bad faith can be established.” Further, the court found the FEGLI pre-empted state bad faith law.
