Your Advocate For ERISA Long-Term Disability
If you are among the one in five Americans who has a disability, you understand the obstacles you could face in obtaining long-term benefits. One law designed to protect workers with long-term disabilities is the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This law governs the duties and disclosures required by employers when it comes to workplace benefits like retirement investments and disability insurance. One of the most common problems employees encounter in their working years is the inability to obtain disability benefits. These problems can stem from misconceptions about benefits and changes to policies that your company is not required to disclose.
If you are disabled and have been denied long-term disability (LTD) benefits at work, the Law Office of Michael B. Cohen is ready to be your advocate in the claims and appeals process. Mr. Cohen is recognized in the Altoona area as a trustworthy lawyer for employees in difficult financial situations.
ERISA Overview: The Trouble With LTD Claims
Mr. Cohen grew up in Blair County and understands the lifestyle and needs of local workers. Through his experience, he has a unique perspective on the law and how it affects employees in Pennsylvania.
ERISA can be a tricky area of law because many of the rules were written to favor the employers and not the employees. Your employer may not be required to disclose some changes in benefit programs, and you may be required to exhaust all administrative options before pursuing litigation.
