Long And Short-Term Disability Insurance Claims

You likely purchased or opted-in to disability insurance coverage just for times like these, but now your insurance company has denied your claim or terminated the benefits you had been receiving. You need to take action to get the disability benefits you are owed but need to be strategic in doing so. Simple mistakes in interacting with your insurance company can wreck your chances of recovering your benefits. Given the complex nature of this area of law, it is important to speak with an attorney before proceeding.

Depending on whether you received disability insurance coverage through work or on your own will determine which laws govern your claim. If you received coverage through work, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) sets very specific guidelines for how and when you can challenge your denial or termination of benefits. If you purchased disability insurance on your own, you may have a wider range of options for pursuing your claim.
