With a few exceptions, if you receive insurance through your employer, any employee benefits claim you may try to make is governed by ERISA — the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. If you have had difficulties in obtaining your long-term disability benefits, this Act defines the process for bringing a claim.
The ERISA attorneys at Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, in San Francisco, have extensive experience in this unique and complex area of law. There are a number of traps that petitioners often fall into, resulting in denial. We help disabled employees throughout California get the disability insurance benefits they are entitled to receive. We can help you, too.
The following pages may assist you in learning more about ERISA but due to the complexity of ERISA law, it is essential that you talk with a lawyer about your particular case in order to know if ERISA applies to you.
What is ERISA about? The Employee Retirement Income Security Act applies to most insurance obtained as an employee benefit from one’s employer. ERISA nullifies many state laws designed to keep insurance companies from acting improperly, and ERISA limits the actions that a policyholder can take to challenge an insurance company’s wrongful denial of benefits.
