El Paso ERISA Disability Appeals Lawyer

Helping Individuals in El Paso Pursue and Resolve an ERISA Disability Appeal

There are a variety of reasons why a claim for long-term disability insurance might be denied by your insurance company. In some instances, the insurance company might determine that you are not suffering from a long-term injury or illness, as required by the language of the insurance policy. 

Moreover, the insurance company might determine that you are capable of doing some work, and that therefore, you are not entitled to long-term disability benefits. Finally, the insurance company might determine that you did not supply the necessary medical documentation to support a valid claim for long-term disability benefits.

If your claim for long term disability benefits under an ERISA plan has been denied, you may have several legal options that are available to you. One of those options may be to go through the appeals process. This process can be complicated if you do not have an experienced El Paso ERISA disability appeals lawyer representing you. Attorney J.

When does ERISA Apply?

The acronym ERISA stands for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1984. This is a federal statute that was enacted by Congress. Since it is a federal statute, it trumps any contradictory state laws. The ERISA statute typically applies to long-term disability insurance policies which are part of an employer-sponsored plan.

Reasons for a Disability Denial

There are many reasons why a claim for long-term disability insurance could be denied under an employer-sponsored ERISA plan. For example, you may not have provided the necessary documentation to show that you are truly disabled and that you are unable to work. Moreover, you may not have followed the necessary procedural requirements for filing your claim, and the insurance company may have denied your claim on that basis. 

In any event, when the insurance company denies your claim, it must send you a letter specifically stating the reasons for the denial and pointing to the insurance policy language which serves as the basis for the denial.

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

Steps for Appealing a Disability Denial

There are several steps that you must follow in order to appeal the denial of long-term disability benefits under an ERISA policy. First, you are required to exhaust all of the administrative remedies under the policy. During this part of the process, you should look to the initial denial letter to determine what documentation must be included with your appeal – and to see what defects need to be remedied.

Once you have exhausted all of the administrative remedies for appeal, you then have the option of filing suit in the federal court system against the insurance company. Once the case is litigated, a federal judge will reach the final determination about whether or not you are entitled to long-term disability benefits. Because ERISA is a federal statute, state law does not apply, and the case will go forward in the federal court system.
