Protecting Your Benefits Under ERISA
For most American professionals and employees, disability insurance and pension plans are extremely important. They provide you with a certain amount of security in your later years and protection against the catastrophic possibility that you become disabled and unable to work. But what happens when things go wrong? If an employer or its insurance carrier does not provide you with the benefits you need, or if something has gone wrong with your pension plan, you need the help of an experienced legal team.

What Is ERISA?
The Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974 is a United States federal law that protects employees in areas of insurance and retirement provided by employers. The law provides a private right of action against employers who violate the rules governing these areas of law. Company-provided insurance, pension plans, disability and retirement plans are all regulated by ERISA.
In general, ERISA is a tremendous legal protection for U.S. workers who might otherwise be taken advantage of by their employers.
