Practice Areas Overview
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law that provides individuals with certain rights and protections. Our firm represents people who are denied healthcarebenefits and entitled to seek benefits through an internal appeal process.
Long-term disability insurance provides coverage to individuals to the age of 65. To be eligible for long-term disability, a person can no longer be able to work because of an illness or disability. We represent clients who are denied long-term benefits as well as those whose policies have been cancelled.
Short-term disability provides up to six months of insurance coverage for a sick or injured person. Our firm helps people throughout all phases of obtaining and maintaining short-term disability.
We routinely advise chronically ill and disabled clients in the coordination of healthcare benefits. We regularly help people maximize coverage related to insurance such as COBRA and Medicare.
Individuals pay into the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits system through payroll deductions. If you are disabled, under the age of 65, and no longer able to work, you may qualify for SSD benefits. If you have been denied a claim for SSD, we can help.
The cost of long-term healthcare such as a nursing home or regular visits from registered nurses can be covered by long-term healthcare insurance. This is insurance consumers purchase, often through ERISA governed plans. When long-term insurance is denied, people can face serious problems paying for necessary care.
Disabled policyholders are entitled to seek premium waivers for items such as automobiles, mortgages, and credit cards. If you have been denied a premium waiver, our firm can help.
