According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than half of all U.S. employees earn health and retirement benefits from their employer.
If your employer offers disability insurance, and you’re unable to work (for reasons other than a workplace injury), then you may be entitled to disability insurance benefits. But insurance companies control these benefits, and they can make it confusing or challenging to get or keep them. Our employee benefits lawyers help you navigate the complicated disability benefits system and get the benefits you’ve earned.
Our firm has the experience you need to navigate the disability insurance system. We can help you understand your options and fight back against the insurance companies. If your disability benefits were denied or terminated, call our office to speak with a lawyer about your options.
Private disability benefits are governed by the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Your employer may refer to these benefits as “employer-sponsored disability insurance,” or more simply, “short-term disability” (STD) and “long-term disability” (LTD). If the disability insurer has denied or terminated your disability benefits, you have a limited amount of time to assert your rights or you could permanently lose them.
