When Does the ERISA Statute Apply?

ERISA is an acronym for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. Congress initially enacted this federal statute in order to help ensure that employees receive benefits, including long-term disability benefits, when they need them most. Unfortunately, this goal has often backfired, and insurance companies and employers are incentivized to deny benefits and limit their exposure whenever and wherever possible.

If your disability policy is part of an employer-sponsored plan of insurance, it is likely that the ERISA statute controls your policy.

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

Making a Benefits Claim

If a healthcare provider has determined, based upon a reasonable degree of medical certainty, that you are suffering from a long-term injury or illness that prevents you from working, you may be eligible to obtain disability benefits under an ERISA policy of insurance. Once you make a claim under the policy, it will be up to the insurance company to determine if you will be awarded benefits.

If you are denied benefits the first time around, you will be sent a denial letter that will outline the process of filing an administrative appeal in your case. In many instances, filing an administrative appeal involves submitting additional medical documentation from a healthcare provider to bolster your claim for disability benefits. 

Once you have submitted your appeal, the insurance company will make another decision. In some instances, depending upon your insurance company, you may be allowed one additional administrative appeal. Otherwise, you will have to appeal your case to the federal court system. In federal court, a judge will make the determination about your entitlement to disability benefits, and you will not be allowed to have a trial by jury.

Both administrative appeals through the insurance company and federal court appeals can be complex and difficult to navigate your way through. An ERISA disability lawyer near you can help you file your claim for permanent disability benefits and can also assist you with appealing any denial – either administratively or through the federal court system.
