The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) is a federal statute designed to protect employees, and requires plans provide specific information, guarantee payment of ERISA insurance benefits and hold plan fiduciaries accountable for improper claim decisions.  However, insurance plans typically process a large number of claims and understand it is in their best interest to deny claims whenever possible.  This is because many insurance and ERISA plans operate under an implied conflict of interest, where the entity that makes the claim decision is also responsible for paying the benefits.  If an insurance company or ERISA plan improperly denies your disability insurance, life insurance, long-term care insurance or health insurance claim, you face an uphill battle when you least want one.  In fact, you are required to file an appeal with the very company that denied your claim before you can file lawsuit.  And the administrative appeals process can take substantial energy and tremendous patience.  Furthermore, ERISA cases often involve specific procedures and strict deadlines.  Failure to adhere to these ERISA deadlines or submit important documents can severely hamper your case.  An experienced ERISA attorney can navigate this complex area of law.
