The first question that many people have when they come to DarrasLaw is: “What is ERISA?” The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, or ERISA, is a law that governs employee benefits. While ERISA addresses all benefits, including retirement accounts, the focus of DarrasLaw is ERISA long-term disability benefits.
Do You Have an ERISA Disability Plan?
If you have group disability insurance from your employer, union or employee group, it is typically governed by ERISA law. If you purchased disability insurance on your own, it is not generally subject to ERISA law, but our lawyers are still able to assist with your case.
At DarrasLaw, our insurance lawyers offer free consultations and information about all stages of ERISA disability insurance claims:
Do you simply want to learn more about your policy and what you are entitled to? Have you only recently become disabled and need help filing a claim? Has the insurance company already run you over and denied your claim? Let our nationally recognized attorneys extend a helping hand.
Your Rights Under ERISA Law
ERISA law provides you with rights and insurance companies with obligations. Unfortunately, that does not stop insurance companies from doing everything they can to keep your benefits in their pockets instead of using it to pay claims.
With more than 100 years of experience on our side, we know the tactics that insurance companies use to deny claims. Some are new. Some tried and true denial strategies have been used for decades. Some insurance companies hide behind the small print. Some mysteriously lose documentation and ask policyholders to resend again and again. Some give the runaround any way they can in the hope that you will get worn out and give up. We encourage you not to. Contact us instead.
Our knowledge of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 means that we know how to protect your rights and hold insurance companies to their obligations.
