Three Things To Know About Disability Insurance Claims And ERISA

There are many nuances to disability insurance, and the process for obtaining short or long-term disability benefits can be confusing and challenging. Below are some things you should know:

  1. Your employer is required to provide information on how to file for short or long-term disability — Your employer is legally required to provide the documentation or other filing information you need to file a disability insurance claim.
  2. You can appeal a denied claim If your claim for short or long-term disability benefits is denied, you can request an internal appeal of your denied claim.
  3. If your appeal is denied, you can sue — Denied appeals are reviewed in a bench trial for which only evidence gathered during the appeal phase will be reviewed and considered.

If your disability claim is denied and you choose to appeal, it is crucial to obtain the advice and assistance of an attorney who has extensive experience and knowledge of ERISA rules and regulations. A ERISA appeals attorney will take steps to obtain the compelling evidence and documentation that is needed to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
