The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a federal law that, in part, protects the rights and interests of employees and other plan participants/beneficiaries. Unfortunately, ERISA can also make the claims process challenging. Large insurance companies know how to manipulate ERISA in their own favor.

ERISA will have an enormous impact on your claim. If you are seeking benefits from an ERISA plan, you must follow the proper claims procedures. If the insurance company denies your claim, you will not have the immediate right file a lawsuit to get your benefits. Instead, you must exhaust the available administrative remedies. In general, the appeals process begins with filing an internal appeal directly with the insurer. You will only have a limited amount of time to bring this appeal. In some cases, you will have 180 days; in other cases, you will have as little as 90 days.
At the end of the administrative appeals process, you will then have the right to file a lawsuit, assuming the insurer has still not offered full and fair benefits. However, in this type of lawsuit, the court will only be able to review the records already contained within your claim file. If you fail to submit relevant evidence to the insurance company during the administrative appeal, you will likely be denied the use of that evidence during any future ERISA litigation. This could undermine your claim. Please be sure to get an experienced lawyer by your side as soon as you receive an initial denial letter.
