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.

Jacksonville ERISA Lawyer

The Employment Security Income Act of 1974, also known as ERISA, is a federal law that regulates how employers manage and disperse employee benefits. It covers issues impacting pension, disability, retirement, health insurance, and any other employer-backed benefit.

ERISA provides a host of legal protections to employees. Unfortunately, its laws can be difficult to interpret, and it can be hard to understand the fine print of many insurance policies.

If you are denied benefits, ERISA gives you the right to retain an employment attorney and file an appeal or lawsuit against the insurer if you believe the denial is unfair. If you have recently had your insurance claim denied or you believe your employer is violating ERISA, hiring a Jacksonville ERISA lawyer may be the best move you could make.

What is the Purpose of ERISA?

As mentioned above, ERISA is a federal mandate that requires employers and insurance companies to act honestly when handling employee benefits and claims. ERISA governs everything from processing times to the steps of an appeal, and if a company does not follow the rules ERISA lays out, they can face serious civil and criminal penalties.

However, it is relatively easy—and sadly common—for employers to violate ERISA. These violations often occur in the following ways:

  • Denying claims for obscure reasons or no reason at all
  • Making changing to coverage options or insurers without notifying employees
  • Unwisely and carelessly investing employee benefits
  • Refusing or failing to provide employees with important information about their insurance benefits
  • Taking too long to process claims or appeals

If an employer or an insurance company they contract with engages in any of the actions listed above, employees have a right to take legal action against them with a Jacksonville ERISA attorney’s help.


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

ERISA and Disability Claims

ERISA contains provisions regarding both long and short-term disability. Unlike workers’ compensation, short and long term disability insurance provides employees with compensation if they are unable to return to work for any medical reason.

Before a person can use their long or short-term disability benefits, they must usually be employed for a certain amount of time. If a short or long term disability claim is approved, the claimant receives a certain percentage of their normal paycheck on a monthly basis until they are healthy enough to return to work.

Unfortunately, obtaining this benefit can be immensely difficult, and often insurance companies will look for any reason to deny benefits to an employee. Even when a disability claim is approved, insurance companies typically seek to provide benefits for the briefest amount of time possible.

Mismanagement of Retirement and Pension Funds

In addition to insurance-related regulations, ERISA also requires employers to avoid carelessly investing employee pensions and retirement funds, but there are many employers who refuse to adhere to this requirement. Such actions are unfair to employees who have worked their entire lives, but companies can be held liable for such actions in court. If an employer wrongly denies an employee retirement or pension funds, that employee may need to hire an ERISA lawyer in Jacksonville to fight for them.
