Many employer-sponsored retirement plans and group welfare plans are subject to the rules and regulations set forth under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Large insurance companies and other plan administrators have been working hard during recent years to sway the ERISA claims process in their favor.

Understanding how ERISA Appeals and ERISA Litigation Work
Sadly, even though they may owe you a fiduciary duty, you often cannot rely on your employer or the insurance company to provide any helpful information or guidance in regard to your ERISA claim or appeal. The law is complicated, and there are loopholes that can cause potential problems with the claims process as well as the appeals process. One example is that you only have a limited amount of time to file a claim, like 180 days for disability benefits denials. However, there are some circumstances where you may have even less time to file an appeal. Failure to meet the deadlines could mean your case is automatically dismissed after that. Before filing a lawsuit in court, you are required to submit an appeal to the insurance company or other plan fiduciary responsible for deciding appeals. It is crucial that you submit all relevant documentation to your claim administrator in your initial application for benefits or in the appeal. In the event your claim goes to litigation, the court may limit its review to the documents that were submitted with the claim and appeal.
