The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) governs life insurance policies and distributions offered to employees through their benefits plan. While insurance companies are supposed to distribute funds for legitimate claims, they will find any excuse or loophole not to. When a person opts for life insurance, they do so with the intent that their family will be able to access the benefits.

An agent may make legitimate or illegitimate mistakes on your application to sell the policy, knowing it will be denied if the unthinkable happens.
