Do you have a disability that is preventing you from working? If so, you may be able to recover benefits under an ERISA insurance plan or another type of individual insurance plan.

If your claim was denied or underpaid in San Mateo County, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our law firm for immediate legal guidance.

Why Are Long-Term Disability Claims Denied?

Under federal law (ERISA) and California state regulations, your insurance company has a legal duty to explain why your claim was not paid in full in your written denial letter. If you have received such a letter, you should get that letter in front of a qualified San Bruno long-term disability lawyer as soon as possible. Long-term disability claims can be denied for a wide variety of reasons. Common examples include:

  • A mistake by the applicant;
  • Disputes over medical evidence;
  • Disagreement over vocational evidence;
  • Insufficient evidence; and
  • Insurance company bad faith.

Three Things You Need to Know About ERISA Disability Claims

If you are making a long-term disability claim under your ERISA plan, there are some very important things that you should know about the process. Specifically, all disability applicants should be aware of the following three things about ERISA:

  • If your long-term disability application is denied, you only have 180 days to file an appeal;
  • You must file an administrative appeal before you can file a disability lawsuit; and
  • In ERISA disability lawsuits, courts can generally only review the evidence that is already in your claim file.

To ensure that you can present the strongest possible appeal, you should always work with an experienced California ERISA disability attorney.
