The Effect of ERISA on Disability Appeals

If you receive your disability benefits under a plan of insurance that is sponsored by your employer, it is very likely that the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 governs the plan. This statute, also known as the ERISA statute, was enacted by Congress back in 1974. The main purpose of this federal statute was to ensure that employees who are entitled to various benefits, including disability benefits, receive them. 

However, over the years, this plan has backfired somewhat, and insurance companies have developed a strong incentive to deny claims for disability benefits. Specifically, insurance companies know that if the matter goes to federal court, the claimant will not be entitled to a trial by jury. This favors the insurance company because a judge ultimately determines the final outcome in the case, rather than a pool of jurors who are representative of the community.

Our number-one goal is getting you and your family back to financial security as soon as possible.

Reviewing the Claim Denial Letter

Prior to filing an appeal in your disability benefits case, the first thing that you or your lawyer should do is to thoroughly review the denial letter. If the insurance company decides to deny your benefits claim, it must send you a letter stating the reasons why. The letter must also outline the procedures and protocols for filing an administrative appeal. Finally, the letter must state the number of administrative appeals to which you are entitled. An Arlington disability insurance appeals lawyer can assist you with filing an administrative appeal in your disability benefits case.

Next Steps in the Process

During the administrative appeals process, you will be required to enter additional documentation. In most instances, insurance companies require medical documentation which clearly demonstrates that you are suffering from a long-term disability that prevents you from working at any job. During the administrative appeals process, you should make sure to gather this additional documentation and submit it on time. If the case eventually goes to federal court, you will not be able to supplement the record at that time.

Once you have exhausted any and all administrative remedies with your insurance company, you could then file a lawsuit against your insurance company in federal court. Following your hearing, a federal judge will make the decision about your entitlement to disability benefits, based primarily on the administrative appeal record.
