Should I Represent Myself During An ERISA Appeal?

Posted By:

You are not required to have an attorney to represent you in your appeal, but having an attorney familiar with the ERISA claims and appeals process is important to the outcome of your case.  If your appeal is denied and then you hire an attorney, he or she will be limited to the claims record to prove your case.  That record is everything you submitted to the plan administrator in support of your claim and appeal and any other evidence that the plan administrator obtained before making a final decision.  Hiring an attorney as soon as you receive a claim denial gives you the best chance of developing a strong claims record and winning your case.
