Employer-provided benefits help to provide for you and your family’s future while ensuring that you are protected against unexpected events.

Let our experienced Chicago ERISA benefits denial attorney help you get the benefits to which you are entitled. 

Have Your Employer-Provided Benefits Been Denied?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, more than 85% of employees are entitled to benefits as part of their jobs. These may include health, life, and disability insurance, retirement savings accounts and pension benefits, stock option plans, and severance packages. Benefits provide security for you and your family, both now and in the future. It can come as a shock to find them denied at a time when you need them the most. Among the most common reasons include: 

  • Procedural errors on the part of claims administrators;
  • Disputes over when benefits went into effect;
  • Issues regarding your terms of coverage;
  • Mismanagement of policies or funds;
  • Changes in employment status, which impact your rights to collect benefits. 

As an experienced Chicago ERISA benefits denial attorney, we protect your rights in this situation. We can guide you in the complex federal laws which apply in these cases. 

ERISA and Denied Employer-Provided Benefits

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) sets minimum standards for how employer-provided benefits are administered. As a federal law, it trumps other state or local laws that may be in place. Provisions under ERISA which will impact your case include: 

  • Requirements for employers to provide employers copies of all benefit plan-related documents, free of charge and at the employee’s request;
  • Firm timelines in approving or denying benefit claims;
  • Guidelines for filing appeals of denied benefits;
  • The right to file a lawsuit if benefits are denied on appeals. 

A clear understanding of ERISA provisions and the procedures that must be followed is vital in obtaining employer-provided benefits.  At the Law Offices of Michael Bartolic, LLC., you can trust our decades worth of experience as a Chicago ERISA benefits denial attorney to help you get the benefits to which you are entitled.
