ERISA Disability Claims – Disability Insurance NY
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is the federal law that regulates the establishment, operation and funding of most non-governmental employee disability insurance benefit plans, including long term disability plans. ERISA was adopted to protect the benefits of plan participants and beneficiaries. Unfortunately, an often hostile court system has misinterpreted ERISA, providing protections to insurance companies at the expense of participants and beneficiaries. ERISA is now used by insurance companies as a sword in an attempt to deprive participants and beneficiaries meaningful judicial review. At Riemer & Associates, we use our thorough knowledge of ERISA to parry the use of ERISA against our clients.
