Disability Insurance Claims in Baltimore
Like most other cities in the country, the residents of Baltimore tend to get their long term disability insurance coverage through an employer-provided plan. A few major employers in Baltimore include John Hopkins University, MedStar Health, Marriot International, and Lockheed Martin. If you have LTD insurance provided by these or any private employer, your disability claim is governed by a federal law called ERISA.
Insurance companies that sell insurance policies to major companies in Baltimore may include but are not limited to Hartford, Lincoln Financial, UNUM, Prudential, and MetLife. The plans provided by these companies are covered by ERISA law, which is a federal statute applicable in all 50 states.
Baltimore is also a hotspot for budding businesses. So close to the nation’s capital, Baltimore attracts companies and entrepreneurs from all circles. If you are one such professional, then you might have a self-employed disability insurance plan provided by another insurance company like AXA Equitable, MassMutual, or a number of others. Such a plan tends to benefit you more when you need to use it, but has the downside of being paid for by your own finances.
Since ERISA law is a federal statute, LTD insurance lawsuits of this mature need to be filed in federal court. Baltimore’s federal court is the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, which appeals to the Fourth Circuit.
