Arlington ERISA Disability Appeals Attorney 

Assisting Individuals in Arlington with Filing an ERISA Disability Appeal

If you receive short or long-term disability benefits through an employer-sponsored plan, chances are that your plan is covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, otherwise known as the ERISA statute. Since ERISA is a federal statute, it is controlled by federal law, and ERISA disability appeals are handled in the federal court system. 

If you have been denied the disability benefits that you need under an employer-sponsored federal ERISA plan, call the experienced ERISA disability appeal lawyers at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara today. Our knowledgeable legal team can help you throughout every step of the appeals process and can pursue the benefits that you need and deserve under your federal plan.

When Can a Denial of Disability Benefits be Appealed?

When it comes to a denial of disability benefits, your denial letter will state the administrative process which you must follow to appeal your claim. The administrative appeals process takes place with the confines of the insurance company, and insurance companies are required to allow at least one level of administrative review. Some insurance companies will even allow for two rounds of administrative review. 

It is only after the insurance company’s entire administrative review process has concluded and your claim has still been denied that you can appeal your case to the federal court system – usually within 180 days. 

What will an Appeals Court Consider during an Appeal?

The appeals process begins when you decide to file a lawsuit against your insurance company in the federal court system. Once that occurs, you will need to obtain a copy of the administrative appeals record from the insurance company, since that is normally submitted as part of the appeal. 

During an appeal hearing, you will not typically be allowed to introduce new medical records. In other words, the only applicable medical records on appeal are those that are part of the insurance company’s administrative record and which were already introduced at the administrative level. Consequently, it is very important that you obtain and introduce all pertinent medical documentation (including medical opinions from doctors regarding the nature and extent of your disability) at the administrative level. 

Following the appeal hearing in your case, a federal judge will make the final decision about your benefits. An experienced Arlington ERISA disability appeals lawyer can make strong legal arguments on your behalf at the appeals hearing, increasing your chances of obtaining the disability benefits you need. 

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