ERISA Claims in New York
The Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a federal statute that governs the administration of employee benefits plans. ERISA laws outline the rights and responsibilities of employers, plan participants, and insurance providers under any health, disability or pension plan provided through the workplace.
Unfortunately, many employee disability insurance funds will wrongfully deny benefits to entitled individuals, giving rise to a claim.
Under the guidelines established by ERISA, filing a claim for the benefits you are entitled to can be a complex process. This requires potential claimants to begin preparing their case as soon as their claim has been denied, well before they ever think about stepping foot into a courtroom.
