ERISA Disability Claims

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a federal law that sets minimum standards for most voluntarily established pension, welfare and health plans in private industry. Long-term disability plans are considered welfare plans.

ERISA is not something every attorney should attempt to practice without research and experience - ERISA is a complex area of law, and few lawyers in the United States have a solid understanding of the field. As a potential client it is important that your attorney have experience in ERISA and ERISA litigation.
