Disability Insurance Claims in Bakersfield, CA
Many people in Bakersfield work for the county. Kern County, like other employers, is required to carry disability insurance. Other popular occupations in Bakersfield include farm work at Giumarra Farms, Grimmway Farms, Bolthouse Farms, construction positions with ARB Inc, and jobs at Mercy Hospital and Bakersfield Memorial Hospital.
Many of these employers are insured by companies like Aetna, CIGNA, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Kaiser Permanente, but several other insurance companies offer long-term disability insurance in Bakersfield. For some doctors, lawyers, and other self-employed professionals, some companies also provide private disability insurance policies.
Most disability insurance policies are governed by ERISA, or the federally-enforced Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. If your long-term disability claim escalates to the level of federal court, it will likely be handled in the United States District Court Eastern District of California at the Bakersfield Federal Courthouse.
Many times, our team can solve your long-term disability claim outside of court, but we are not afraid to go to trial if needed.
