The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, or ERISA, allows for minimum standards for employee plan, including disability insurance, in the private industry throughout the nation.
ERISA and a Disability Claim
ERISA issues can come into play when a person is facing a matter involving some sort of disability claim. This particularly can be the case when an injured or sick employee ends up being unable to return to his or her position of employment. Understanding how ERISA provides protections to you, as a disabled employee, and what are your obligations under ERISA will be important to securing your disability benefits from the disability insurance company.
The laws concerning ERISA do not apply to those individual insurance policies or benefits that have been privately purchased. There are limitations, however, there are some protections available to employees that make a civil claim possible. It’s important for the employee to seek legal counsel to better decipher the law and determine if they have a case under ERISA.
