Although ERISA does not mandate that employers offer benefits to their employees, when employers do establish a benefits plan, ERISA requires the plan meet certain standards. If your employer fails to satisfy these conditions or if you are denied benefits, you can pursue legal action to receive the benefits you are due.
At Clark Law Group, PLLC, our attorneys counsel private sector workers across the country on their employee benefits rights. We understand that when your benefits claim is rejected, you and your family may suffer financially.
Whether you are seeking disability benefits, retirement benefits or sums promised through a severance agreement, you may depend on these funds to pay for current living, transportation or medical expenses. During this time, it is necessary to retain a lawyer who knows which method is most effective to use to secure compensation.
