U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Patryas, 303 U.S. 341 (1938)

United States v. Patryas

No. 445

Argued February 11, 1938

Decided February 28, 1938

303 U.S. 341


Under § 307 of the World War Veterans Act, as amended July 3, 1930, a claim for total permanent disability on a reinstated and converted War Risk policy cannot be contested upon the bare ground that the total and permanent disability existed before the insurance was reinstated. P. 303 U. S. 342.

Section 307 provides that policies of insurance

"issued, reinstated, or converted shall be incontestable from the date of issuance, reinstatement, or conversion, except for fraud, nonpayment of premiums, or on the ground that the applicant was not a member of the military or naval forces of the United States."

The converted policy sued on promised to pay in the event of total permanent disability, upon due proof of such disability "while this policy is in force." Unlike original policies issued under the War Risk Act, it contained no clause expressly excluding liability for total permanent disability incurred before the policy was applied for.

90 F.2d 715 affirmed.

Certiorari, 302 U.S. 676, to review the affirmance of a judgment recovered against the Government on a Veteran's policy of insurance. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
