After working hard for years at your job, it can come as a shock when employee benefits you are entitled to are denied or otherwise not available. You may have been counting on these benefits to provide for your future and to maintain your financial security in the face of unexpected events.

As an experienced Skokie ERISA lawyer, we provide the trusted, professional legal representation you need to navigate through the complex laws that apply to employee benefit claims. 

Why You Need a Skokie ERISA Lawyer

When benefits are provided through a private employer, they are generally subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). As a federal law, ERISA sets minimum standards for how benefits programs are administered. Common types of employee benefits which are covered include: 

  • Health insurance;
  • Health Reimbursement (HRA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA);
  • Short or long term disability insurance;
  • Long term care coverage;
  • Life insurance;
  • Accidental death and dismemberment policies;
  • Severance pay packages;
  • Employee assistance programs;
  • Pension and 401k retirement accounts;
  • Deferred compensation plans. 

When filing a claim or attempting to collect on any of the above benefits, it is important to have our experienced Skokie ERISA lawyer on your side. ERISA covers all aspects of your case, and the claims process can be complex. In the event problems arise, the Law Offices of Michael Bartolic provides the trusted guidance you need, helping to resolve issues in the most effective and efficient manner possible. 

Get the Benefits You Deserve

Employee benefit disputes can arise over insurance company denials, disputes over coverage or eligibility periods, and mismanagement of funds. In these types of cases, ERISA rules apply. At the Law Offices of Michael Bartolic, our experienced Skokie ERISA lawyer defend your rights under ERISA, which include:

  • The right to disclosure of pertinent information regarding your plan. Plan administrators must provide policy documents within thirty days or face fines and criminal penalties;
  • The right to have claims processed in a timely manner. Your employer has up to 30 days to provide notification about your claim, with extensions granted when additional information is required.  
  • The right to file an appeal. If your claim is denied, you have a right to appeal the decision. 
  • The right to file a lawsuit against your employer. If your appeal is denied, you may be entitled to compensation through a civil lawsuit.
