ERISA Appeals Attorney Near Me

Helping Individuals in Texas File an ERISA Appeal and Navigate their way through the Appeals Process

When it comes to ERISA benefits, the law is definitely not on the side of the insured individual. ERISA – or the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 – is a federal law that was put in place to help insureds receive the benefits they need. ERISA applies to most employer-sponsored insurance plans, including insurance plans that provide for long-term disability coverage.

In many instances, however, insureds find that they do not receive the benefits that they need, putting them in an adversarial relationship with their own insurance companies. If your insurance company has denied you the benefits you deserve under an employer-sponsored ERISA plan, the Texas ERISA appeals attorneys at the Law Offices of J. Price McNamara may be able to help. Our team can assist you with the various levels of appeal and pursue the benefits you deserve under your plan. 

Please contact us online today for more information and to schedule a free case evaluation and legal consultation.

After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.

Two Levels of Appeal

When it comes to ERISA cases, there are two different appeal levels: the administrative level and the federal court level. An administrative appeal is an appeal which is handled in-house by a person’s own insurance company. In other words, an administrative appeal is an internal appeal. 

By law, insurance companies are required to allow one administrative appeal, although many insurance companies provide for two levels of internal review. 

An administrative appeal allows an individual who has been denied benefits an opportunity for review. In some instances, an administrative appeal might require that you turn over additional documentation that supports your claim. If that is the case, it is essential that you submit this documentation at the internal appeal level. In the event you have to subsequently appeal your case to federal court, you will not be able to submit additional documentation at that time. 

Once you have exhausted your internal appeals and you still have not recovered benefits, you will have to look to the court system. Because ERISA is a federal statute, any appeal that you file will be litigated in the federal court system and will be decided by a judge – not a jury. The judge will consider all of the documentation that you submitted at the administrative level but will not consider any new evidence when making a decision in your case. Following your hearing, a federal judge will have the final say about whether you are entitled to ERISA benefits. 

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