Dallas, Texas, Attorney Handling Employee Benefits / ERISA Claims
Employee benefits law is complex. While most employers are not required to offer health care or pension benefits, if they do, they must follow the requirements of federal law.
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was enacted in 1974 to make sure that employer-sponsored benefit plans are administered fairly and are kept on a solid financial footing.
ERISA covers employee benefits such as health insurance, short- and long-term disability insurance, pensions, 401(k) retirement plans and life insurance. If your employer-sponsored benefit plan denies a valid claim, you have the right to file a lawsuit after internal appeals have been exhausted.
