ERISA Claims

ERISA Is a federal law that governs employee benefits and claims for employee benefits, including those claims for employee benefits that are fully funded by and administered by insurance companies. When you have a claim for employee benefits – whether for disability, health, life or other benefits which have been provided to you through your employer, the process of pursuing your claim and, if necessary, bringing a lawsuit to enforce your right to receive benefits, will be governed by ERISA.

Schwartz Law has represented hundreds of clients in both the claims process and in litigation, making sure that the insurance companies cannot rely upon the intricacies of ERISA to deny or withhold benefits from you. Our work helped create a law under ERISA which has helped people like you get their benefits in every corner of the United States.
