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?

What information must disability denial letters include?

When a person in New York needs disability benefits, the reasons why may seem obvious to them. After all, if an injury or illness keeps them from being able to work, they may find themselves losing out on lost wages along with mounting medical bills, and therefore they are in need of financial help. However, sometimes a person's claim for disability benefits is denied. That being said, when it comes to a denied claim, applicants have rights under federal law.

What are the timelines for an ERISA disability appeal?

When a person becomes too injured or ill to work, disability benefits can serve as a means for keeping them afloat financially. For those in Garden City who have disability benefits through their employer, it is important to understand that these benefits are protected by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). There are laws and rules with regards to the processing of a claim for benefits and what a person can do if his or her claim for benefits is denied.
