ERISA Disability Claims
Under ERISA, there is a two-step benefits claim and denied claim appeals process. You have the right to claim disability or medical benefits and to present arguments and evidence to your Plan’s administrator to prove you deserve them. If the Plan administrator denies your claim, you have the right to appeal. What you do (or don’t do) when you file your ERISA claim and appeal will typically make the difference between your getting and losing ERISA benefits.
One simply cannot overstate the importance of this two-step procedure. Unless you complete this appeal, you have no right to have your disability lawyer bring a lawsuit. Many people lose their benefits because they didn’t do everything they could have done to prove their case during the two-step ERISA administrative process. Typically the Plan’s administrator will not be a help to you, even though the administrator is supposedly your fiduciary.
