We can help you with these ERISA cases:
LONG TERM DISABILITY – Many employees believe that they will automatically be covered by disability insurance policies. But, many who qualify for benefits discover that insurance companies do not make good on their policies. Disability can strike at any time and for any number of reasons. If and when it does, and you are fortunate to have group long term disability (LTD) insurance through your employer, you expect your long term disability plan to deliver on its promise to protect your income. Our ERISA lawyers are here to help!
SHORT TERM DISABILITY – Short term disability insurance benefits may not be covered by ERISA, but properly pursuing them can have long term impacts. Short term disability claims are tricky. Sometimes they are covered by ERISA, and sometimes they are not. You should seek the advice of a disability attorney as soon as your claim is denied. Regardless of the amount at stake, an appeal of such a denial can have significant repercussions on future long term disability claims.
LIFE INSURANCE – Life insurance is a common benefit of employment. As a result, it may be covered by ERISA. The policies may cover all causes of death and may even cover a spouse or child. Though claims under such policies would appear straightforward, they are regularly denied.
PENSION & RETIREMENT CLAIMS – Pensions and retirement funds managed by employers are a primary benefit of employment and fall under ERISA. These funds typically provide monthly income after retirement. Some plans pay lump sum retirement benefits. And, some provide for the continuation of retirement payments to a spouse after the insured dies. If you have difficulty with your pension or retirement claim, you should discuss it with an ERISA pension lawyer as soon as possible.
It is common for disability insurance companies to use ambiguous and confusing wording in their insurance contracts, which gives them multiple ways to delay or deny your application for disability benefits. Our extensive experience fighting for disability benefits rights has given us a comprehensive understanding of disability insurance law and ERISA.
As a disability insurance law firm, we know what to look for in a policy, what weaknesses to spot in an insurance company's denial, and how to exploit these weaknesses on behalf of our clients. Throughout the years, our long term disability insurance lawyers have filed lawsuits and successfully fought all major disability insurance companies.
