ERISA Attorney – ERISA Lawyer
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was enacted to protect employees. However, it has had the opposite effect of protecting those employees whose insurance policies fall under ERISA. These policies (insurance paid for by their employers) which were purchased to protect the employee, such as a Long Term Disability policy that pays for lost income when you are unable to work, are governed by ERISA (with a few exceptions.) There is a strict administrative process that must be completed or otherwise risk losing the right to litigate a claim. If your claim for benefits is denied after the administrative process has been completed then the only recourse available is to file litigation in Federal Court where the most the court can do is force the insurer to pay the claim if it determined it should have been paid in the first place. There are no punitive damages or jury trial in ERISA claims.
What is ERISA?
ERISA stands for Employee Retirement Income Security Act. ERISA was established in 1974 by President Gerald Ford, and its laws are everchanging and complicated.
