The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a complex federal law that governs employee benefits. While ERISA does not mandate that employers provide coverage, if employers do provide such benefits, they generally must comply with ERISA.
Practical Experience You Can Trust
One requirement that ERISA imposes on employers that offer benefit plans is that they act in the best interest of the participants in the plan. For example, for employers that offer 401(k) plans to their employees, that means they must try to keep administrative costs low for participants, including offering investment options that do not have excessive fees.
Whether an employer is violating these requirements of ERISA can be a difficult question to answer. However, the knowledgeable ERISA attorneys at Thomas & Solomon LLP can guide you through this complex area of law and review your plan information to make sure the employer is complying with ERISA.
We can also help you with submitting a claim for benefits or appealing a denial. Because the information you provide during the process for making a claim could have an impact at all stages of the process, it is important that you have someone on your side who fully understands the law and what is at stake.
Mistakes made in appealing a denial can have significant consequences. Too often, people who are initially denied on a claim irreversibly harm their case by not appealing a denial correctly.
Do not let this happen to you. We can help you understand the law, compile evidence and create a thorough claim or appeal.
