Employer-provided benefit plans play a key role in your financial security. These programs protect you in the event the unexpected occurs while ensuring your financial security in years to come. Unfortunately, complex federal rules can make obtaining these benefits challenging. At Kantor and Kantor, LLP, we act as a trusted ally to protect your rights in these situations. As experienced San Diego ERISA attorneys, we provide the professional guidance and aggressive legal representation you need to get the benefits to which you are entitled.

How the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) Impacts You

Under federal law, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was put into effect in 1974 as a key part of pension reform. It establishes minimum standards for voluntary, employer-sponsored benefit programs, which include:

ERISA regulates fiduciary duties in terms of managing funds and sets rules regarding how benefits are administered. While there are other state laws protecting worker benefits and providing remedies in disputes with employers, ERISA preempts them all.

When a benefit claim is denied, you will need to follow ERISA procedures in appealing your case. These rules and regulations are understandably confusing to the majority of people, but our San Diego ERISA attorneys are here to help.
