Many, but not all, retirement plans are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This federal law sets forth standards that plan administrators must follow and also provides claimants with an appeals process. The basic timeline of the ERISA claims process is as follows:
The single biggest mistake claimants make is that they wait until it is time to file a lawsuit to seek out an attorney. This leads to many valid retirement claims getting denied. Please do not let this happen to you. Here is what the insurance company is not telling you: The information in your case file as of the date of the final decision is the only information that the court will consider during a lawsuit. In other words, if you have not submitted the correct evidence in a timely manner, that evidence will usually never make it into the courtroom.
