Worker files ERISA lawsuit for wrongful termination of benefits

Sometimes a worker suffers an injury or illness so severe that it disables him or her. Not being able to work can be a financial blow, but if a person has a long-term disability insurance plan, they may be provided with the benefits needed to help support them and their family during a difficult time. However, what would happen if these benefits were suddenly taken away?

Long-term disability benefits are a financial lifeline for some

While people in Garden City may acknowledge that in general people should have long-term disability insurance, few have actually taken steps to obtain such coverage. According to one survey, 65 percent of respondents claimed that individuals in general should have a long-term disability insurance policy. However, only 48 percent of respondents reported that they personally should have such coverage. Furthermore, merely 20 percent of respondents actually had such policies.

What types of claims are there for ERISA purposes?

Workers in New York who cannot work due to a short-term or long-term disability may be in need of financial assistance. This can come in the form of benefits from a disability insurance policy. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) sets rules regarding how an application for disability benefits under a disability insurance policy is processed, how long an insurer has to decide on an application and what the worker's rights are should their application for benefits be denied by their insurer. For ERISA purposes, there are a number of different types of claims that a person can pursue.

Plan for the unexpected with a short-term disability policy

Most people in Garden City will take time off from work occasionally. People in the workforce can plan for their vacations, but something that could keep them out of work that they cannot plan for is a serious injury or illness. When taking a day or two of sick leave is not enough, injured or ill workers may need to look into other options.
