The employee benefits attorneys at Greg Coleman Law are knowledgeable in many aspects of employee benefits law, including general advice and counsel on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and other laws relating to employee benefit plans, and ERISA litigation and support.
Amendments to ERISA
ERISA has been amended several times since it was first enacted in 1974 to extend coverage from just pension benefits to include health benefits as well.
These laws were created to be applicable to private employers that offer some type of insurance coverage or employee benefits plan. However, it is important to note that these laws DO NOT apply to privately purchased policies, nor do they require employers to offer these plans to their employees.
What To Do If My Claim Was Rejected?
If your initial ERISA claim was rejected, it is VERY IMPORTANT to note that you only have 180 days to appeal this decision. If you do not claim within this time period, the claimant loses their right to claim benefits.
By contacting any of our attorneys, we will be able to assist you and get the process started.
Will My Case Go To Trial?
As each state generally has different laws that apply to their employee disability benefits plans, any disputes or discrepancies that are governed by ERISA, will quite often not go to trial.
