Whether you are covered by an employer-sponsored group long term disability insurance plan, or carry your own, private long term disability insurance, you are legally entitled to benefits if you become disabled. In the event that you are covered through a private employer’s group insurance policy, your right to appeal a denied claim for long term disability benefits is protected under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). At the law offices of Michael Bartolic, LLC, we represent clients in Sugar Grove who are in need of benefits, and handle ERISA § 502 claims against group long term disability insurance companies.

This right is protected under ERISA. We will represent you throughout the entirety of the appeals process. If your claim for benefits has been denied, the sooner that you involve our law firm in the process, the better the chances are of the denial being overturned during an appeal.
