Reno ERISA Attorneys

Federal Disability Claim Management

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law designed to ensure employees receive the long term disability benefits they are deserved. Most people covered by an LTD insurance plan receive that coverage as an employment benefit, which means that ERISA laws apply to most LTD claims and cases. However, the purpose of ERISA can only be useful if it is followed, respected, and enforced. Some dishonest insurance companies might still try to deny your LTD benefits despite ERISA law saying otherwise.

If you are in a conflict with an insurance company over long term disability insurance, then turn to the Reno ERISA lawyers of Kantor & Kantor, LLP for assistance. We are here to lend our decades of collective legal experience with a focus on insurance claims to your case. Whatever an insurance company tries to do, we will be ready to counter and challenge it on your behalf.

Make sense of your ERISA claim the easy way. Just dial (877) 783-8686.

How Insurers Violate ERISA

ERISA law sets expectations for long term disability insurance companies to meet when managing a policyholder’s claim or application. When insurance companies do not meet those expectations, either through intentional actions or genuine negligence, it could constitute an ERISA violation.

Four common examples of ERISA violations are:

  • Wrongful benefits denial: The easiest way for an insurer to try to avoid paying an LTD claimant a fair payout is by denying their claim entirely, regardless of its validity. Intentionally denying benefits that are deserved is an obvious issue, but it often requires an attorney’s intervention to set things right.
  • Lost benefits: A long term disability claim’s benefits might be dependent on financial accounts that must be carefully managed to ensure there will always be LTD benefits available to valid claimants. Losing benefits due to the negligent mismanagement of such an account can be an ERISA violation.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty: Account managers can breach their fiduciary duties in other ways that negatively impact your LTD benefits. A fiduciary duty is essentially one party’s written or assumed responsibility to always do what is best for the party they represent or manage.
  • Wrongful termination: In some situations, an employer will fire an employee without due cause in an attempt to prevent them from getting LTD benefits through the insurance provided through their employment. Employers may be tempted to take this unsavory action because it can lower their monthly insurance premiums.

Client Testimonials

  • First of all, I want to express my extreme gratitude for probably saving my daughter's life.

    “First of all, I want to express my extreme gratitude for probably saving my daughter's life. By staying in treatment, the improvement is remarkable. She had been in eating disorder facilities many times, and treatment had been interrupted repeatedly by Anthem Blue Cross's denying benefits. Many of the health professionals were telling me that maybe my daughter was a hopeless case. You both gave me hope. She is still struggling with some residual issues around eating, but the change in her attitude, her ability to assess her own recovery, and her wish to live instead of to die, is evident in her life. Now she is back in school, after years of having her education disrupted by the eating disorder. She goes places with friends, and even goes out to restaurants for fun! This year marked the first holiday season for many years, when she had not been in a treatment facility. Other people gave up and you didn't. I can't thank you enough. You took the action that was necessary to keep my daughter in treatment long enough for it to work.”

  • Your kindness will never be forgotten.

    “Dear Glenn, Several weeks ago, you graciously met with my husband and me and provided us with invaluable advice vis a vis his application for Long Term Disability and the Voluntary Transition Plan offered by his employer. Your calming presence and thoughtful guidance was so gratefully appreciated and we both felt much lighter as we left your office. We are pleased to advise you that David's application for LTD was approved the day after we met with you (sigh of relief)! Had it not been, we knew when were we would go for representation. We both want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. Your kindness will never be forgotten. With Warmest Regards, Lori and David C.”
