Long Term Disability / Life /
Accidental Death / ERISA

Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.

Raleigh ERISA Attorney

If you have a benefits plan through your employer, then you might have heard of the term ERISA. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act covers employee benefit plans, including long term disability, health plans, pensions, and retirement plans. It has been in existence since 1974.

ERISA does many things. It requires plan sponsors to provide participants with information about the plan. It establishes standards of conduct for those who oversee and administer the plans. Most importantly, it ensures that the funds in the plan are protected so that when a participant needs the money, it is readily available. The funds are protected even if a company goes bankrupt.

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.

It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.

Client Testimonials

Our Testimonials

However, not all plans are covered under ERISA. In order for a policy to be covered, it must be a fund, program, or plan established by an employer or employee organization. It must also be provided to employees and/or their beneficiaries for the purpose of providing benefits for medical issues, disability, accidents, death, unemployment, and vacation.

In 2013, ERISA protected 2.4 million health plans, 2.4 million welfare benefit plans, and 684,000 retirement plans. ERISA is important because it protects plans from abuse and mismanagement. It also holds plan sponsors accountable for their actions. It is enforced by the Internal Revenue Service, Employee Benefits Security Administration, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.


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

Issues With ERISA

While ERISA appears to be very helpful to employees, that is not always the case. ERISA has changed a lot since it was first implemented in 1974. It has, unfortunately, become less and less employee friendly. When ERISA cases go to court, judges tend to side with the insurance company. In addition, these cases now go to federal court, and very few lawyers are familiar with the procedures involved with trying a case in federal court.

In many ERISA cases, there are no trials. Many judges now solely use evidence that the insurance company received before the lawsuit was even filed. This can be detrimental to one’s case, especially if new evidence resurfaced later on.

Even if you do win your case, your benefits will be limited. You are not allowed to receive benefits due to the wrongful denial. Punitive damages are also gone. If you win your case, you will only get your benefits repaid and maybe attorney’s fees if you are lucky.

Contact a Raleigh ERISA Lawyer

Although ERISA is supposed to protect employees, disability insurance policies tend to favor the insurer. If you have been disabled due to an injury, you may not receive the benefits you deserve.

If your claim has been denied, do not let that stop you from obtaining the benefits you are entitled to receive. It is time to take legal action with a Raleigh ERISA lawyer.
