ERISA Laws & Disability Claims
The Employee Income Retirement Security Act (ERISA) is the governing act for the vast majority of long-term disability claims. It was written specifically to protect employee rights to disability pay when they cannot work due to an injury or illness. To this end, it applies primarily to health insurance and disability pay programs provided by employers to eligible employees.
ERISA is a federal act, so it is the same in all 50 states. It is also more complicated than many state-level disability laws. You should only work with an LTD claim attorney who is familiar with ERISA law, like the lawyers you can find here at Kantor & Kantor.
Let our attorneys represent you and help with:
- Meeting all claim deadlines and statutes of limitations
- Reviewing your disability or healthcare policy for coverage and benefits options
- Compiling your response to the claim denial

Insurance bad faith occurs when an insurance company acts in a way that is outside the acceptable regulations or is outright unlawful and for the purpose of damaging a policyholder’s claim. It can take many forms, all of which our attorneys are capable of challenging. If you suspect that your long-term disability claim has been subjected to intentional mishandling by the responding insurance company, then it is imperative that we start investigating your case now to see what can be done about it.
Common forms of insurance bad faith are:
- Denying a claim without giving a valid reason
- Delaying the management of a claim beyond industry regulations
- Diminishing benefits under the required amount
- Incorrectly labeling a disability as ineligible for benefits
Long-term disability insurance benefits can provide you with the financial support you need while you are unable to work. Not having that support because an insurance company doesn’t want to take your case seriously can be a disaster for your finances and your overall wellbeing. Give yourself a fighting chance after an insurer denies your claim and makes your future stability uncertain. Call (877) 220-0556 and connect with our Portland long-term disability lawyers today.
