If you find yourself a situation that requires you to apply for ERISA long-term disability benefits, you will most likely find out how challenging the process can be. Any mistakes or accidental omissions you might make in the process could completely jeopardize your application, leaving you with a denial of benefits and no way to pay your basic household bills.
At Michael Bartolic, LLC, we have been helping clients in Gilberts obtain the ERISA benefits they deserved for over a decade now. Over the years, we have worked to help fix many different mistakes that our clients made when they first applied for their ERISA benefits. We believe in educating the public on everything to do with ERISA rules, regulations, and benefits. With that said, we have found that it is crucial for applicants to understand some of the common mistakes we have seen people make when applying for ERISA benefits.
We hope that knowing these common mistakes will help you avoid making the same mistakes on your own application. While you can certainly apply for your ERISA benefits on your own, we want to stress the importance of having a knowledgeable Gilberts ERISA attorney handle your claim to ensure that no mistakes are made and to fight any possible denials.
You also do not want to enlist the assistance of an attorney who is not experienced with ERISA cases. Because ERISA rules and regulations are complex, you need someone who is extremely familiar with the evidence that is required or evidence that is allowed in appeals, the strict deadlines, and other important aspects of the ERISA application and appeals process. If you need or want assistance, contact a Gilberts ERISA attorney today at Michael Bartolic, LLP (510) 992-6130 for a free evaluation of your case.
