California ERISA Attorneys
With the aid of ERISA attorneys, California residents can better pursue the benefits that their insurance policies are intended to provide. Many claimants receive their insurance benefits through their employers. In addition to health insurance, they may also be covered by disability or life insurance policies.
Unfortunately, there have been a number of cases in which employees' rights are hindered under ERISA. Insurance providers can deny claims without the risk of incurring costs beyond benefits spelled out in the policies, sometimes leading them to deny claims that should be approved.

What is ERISA?
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA, is a federal law that was enacted in 1974 in an effort to protect employee benefits. When it was first passed, ERISA was intended to ensure that workers would receive their pension benefits, but the law also covers insurance benefits.
While every situation is unique, some common ERISA violations include:
- Improper denial of benefits
- Lost benefits due to negligence
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Wrongful termination to avoid paying benefits
