The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a notoriously complex federal law that governs the short and long-term disability claims process for most employer-sponsored group disability plans. If you or a loved one has a short-term disability or a long-term disability, and you are covered by an ERISA plan, you may be entitled to benefits.
The insurance companies that fund and/or administer disability benefits claims can make obtaining your benefits a real challenge. In far too many cases, valid short-term disability claims and/or long-term disability claims are wrongly rejected. At The Garner Firm, compassionate Philadelphia long term disability attorney Adam H.

If your short-term disability or long-term disability claim was denied, Mr. Garner is ready to help you recover the compensation that you are owed.
