Short Term Disability
Short Term Disability Lawyer
Money deducted from an employee’s paycheck may be used to pay short-term disability insurance. How the premiums are deducted and paid can determine what law applies and thus what relief you may be entitled to. Read more about whether such claims may be covered by ERISA.
Short-term disability insurance benefits may not be covered by ERISA, but properly pursuing them can have long-term impacts.
Short-term disability claims are tricky. Sometimes they are covered by ERISA, and sometimes they are not. You should seek the advice of an attorney as soon as your claim is denied. Regardless of the amount at stake, an appeal of such a denial can have significant repurcussions on future long-term disability claims.
A short-term disability claim may develop into a long-term disability claim. The case must be properly documented from the beginning for a later long-term disability claim to be successful.
