The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) is a federal law that governs most health and pension plans provided by private employers. The Sharman Law Firm LLC handles the following types of ERISA claims:
- Disability insurance benefits
- Health insurance benefits (where the claim is over $50,000)
- Life insurance and accidental death benefits
- 401k claims – particularly where an employer or administrator has failed to properly deposit funds
- Pension claims
Disability Insurance Benefits
Disability insurance benefits are designed to protect you in the unfortunate event that an injury or sickness prevents you from working. Disability insurance—also known as income replacement insurance—may be purchased through your employer or on your own. The vast majority of ERISA claims relate to disability benefits. Unfortunately, many people do not realize how many disability insurance claims are denied.
Life Insurance Benefits
Like heath care and pension plans, life insurance benefits that an employee or the employee’s dependent gets through a private employer are subject to ERISA. ERISA has peculiar rules, and you want an attorney that has ERISA litigation experience if your claim for ERISA life insurance benefits is denied.
Life insurance protects your family from the loss of your earning power in case you die. The Sharman Law Firm works to protect you when the insurance company denies a life insurance or accidental death insurance claim. ERISA attorneys at The Sharman Law Firm LLC fight aggressively to help you recover life insurance benefits that are denied.
