Where breaches of fiduciary duty have occurred in the management of retirement, healthcare, and disability plans, participants can file claims and lawsuits. If your disability is making it difficult or impossible to carry out the duties of your job, we can help you collect the medical documentation you need to prove your need for short or long-term disability benefits. Most of these cases are handled outside of court and require you to go through an extensive administrative process. Don’t be overwhelmed by this. We can help you get through the process and make sure your rights are fully protected.

Because it’s complex and the employer has its own experts to rely on, it is important for you to contact a Phoenix ERISA benefits lawyer as soon as possible so we can gather all relevant documents and begin crafting an effective case.

The Employment Retirement Income Security Act is a federal law that acts to protect the retirement assets of employees in the U.S. This law covers two primary areas: disability benefits plans and pension plans. The law sets minimum standards for group benefits of employees, such as for retirement, health, life, and disability benefits. Because you likely receive private disability insurance through your benefit plan sponsored by your employer, ERISA rules and regulations will apply. 

ERISA was set up to ensure that plan assets are not misused by those in charge of them. ERISA also applies to non-retirement accounts, such as health plans established for employees through their employment. ERISA requires that participants in all such accounts receive regular information about the vesting, participation, accrual of benefits, funding, and other details of these plans and accounts. ERISA is enforced by the Department of Labor.
