After spending your career or a long period of time working for a living and providing value to your employer, it is expected to be taken care of beyond simply a salary and little else. Unfortunately, before the implementation of ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) in 1974, employees were vulnerable to sub-par benefits and a varying scale of options wherever they worked. Fortunately, ERISA protects employees from this variability and lack of transparency from the insurance company when requesting benefits when you need them most. In addition, ERISA law often comes into play when claims of long-term disability or life insurance benefits are denied, which can you in a particularly bad spot.
Fortunately, an ERISA attorney can help, offering expert assistance and advice that can save you as the claimant both time and money. The goal in implementing ERISA protections was to safeguard the consumer and employee against being taken advantage of in the face of insurance companies. Still, it can be a difficult field of law to understand, especially since the technical knowledge required is so demanding. In addition, since many of the instances when applying for benefits in any of the fields like pension plans, disability insurance, life insurance, and more are often called upon in times of need, the last thing you need to have to do is to attempt to hand the matter independently.
