San Francisco ERISA Attorneys
Long Term Disability Lawyers Fighting for You
San Francisco ERISA long term disability lawyers constantly have to fight the bottom line of the insurance companies on behalf of their clients. Long term disability insurers are always trying to find ways to save money, and this often comes at the expense of San Francisco claimants.
No matter how often these corporations tell customers that they are valued, the proof is in the record number of long term disability cases that are being denied in the Bay area.
Furthermore, as the San Francisco population ages, the rising cost of long term care is putting major stress on both the insurance companies and the elderly. Instead of figuring out how to plan for an influx of older policyholders who are in need of sustained care, these companies are finding creative ways to deny all kinds of claims. Now, even tiny mistakes on paperwork can cause your long term care or long term disability coverage to be revoked or contested.
What Is Considered an ERISA Case?
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, or more commonly known as ERISA, is a federal law that establishes minimum standards for employer's who handle and pay for disability, pensions, and other benefits for their employees.
Simply, ERISA is designed to ensure you get the benefits you deserve and are promised by your employer. If you are not given those benefits, then it gives you the right to file a lawsuit.
ERISA Claims Process: What to Expect
While the process can be a long one, with the help of our experienced San Francisco ERISA attorneys, Kantor & Kantor, LLP is determined to see you through to a successful end.

If that is again denied, then a lawsuit will be filed against the insurance company, demanding the full disability benefits that you are entitled to under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
