What Is the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)?
"ERISA" is the Employees Retirement Income Security Act. This Federal Law governs most employer-sponsored disability and life insurance plans. ERISA has many strict procedures and deadlines which must be followed or your rights can be lost. Few lawyers handle these cases due to the complicated rules. Attorney Scott Shaffman has decades of experience representing clients on ERISA claims.
Your ERISA Claims and Rights
All ERISA claims have several things in common. They are most frequently litigated in Federal Court, the court in which most lawyers are uncomfortable. Before getting to court, there is an administrative appeal that you must follow. It is imperative that this appeal procedure is followed.
If it is not, you will in all likelihood lose your right to sue the insurance company. If you wish, we can send you a brief summary of the appeal process and what you must do to make sure the appeal is properly prosecuted. All you have to do is email us and request it.
