Administrators of long-term disability plans covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) must apply this very complex and detailed statute and interpret lengthy plans to make a benefits decision. Have you been “reinventing the wheel” each time a claim is made? Are you researching websites for hours trying to interpret and apply this complex law?
Mistakes in the claims process can even result in personal liability when the plan administrator breaches fiduciary responsibilities. The administrator has many complex questions to answer and must have the technical knowledge necessary to answer these questions within the reasonable timeframes provided by the law.
- What must a claimant prove to be entitled to disability benefits?
- How much time does the plan administrator have to make a decision on a claim?
- What documents is the plan administrator allowed to request of the claimant to prove disability?
- Can approved benefits ever terminate if a claimant is no longer disabled?
- When can a plan administrator deny disability benefits?
