An Introduction to ERISA Short- and Long-Term Disability Claims 2021

Product ID: CA3140R2
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Common claims but a challenging process

Every year, 5.6% of working Americans on average experience a short-term disability due to illness, injury, or pregnancy.1 When it comes to long-term disabilities, the Social Security Administration predicts that 1 in 4 of today’s 20 year olds will become disabled before reaching retirement age.2

Disability is more common than most people realize, yet the process of submitting disability claims is anything but run-of-the-mill. It’s precise, deadline-driven, and must be navigated carefully. An Introduction to ERISA Short- and Long-Term Disability Claims will provide an overview of the Employee Retirement Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This federal law governs the vast majority of employee benefit claims, including short- and long-term disability insurance under a private employer’s group plan.
