Most employer-provided health and retirement benefits are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). If you claim benefits from your employer-sponsored benefit plan and your claim is denied, you must follow the specific procedures under ERISA to obtain your benefits. These processes are not intuitive and in fact are very complex. Consulting with an experienced ERISA attorney is instrumental in the success of your claim.
Located in San Francisco, Creitz & Serebin LLP vindicates the rights of employees throughout the Bay Area, in San Jose and across the country, helping individuals obtain their wrongfully denied retirement, disability, health and life insurance benefits.
Appealing Denied ERISA Benefits Claims
ERISA contains strict timelines and procedures for appealing a denied benefit. It is important to work with experienced ERISA attorneys who understand the laws surrounding various benefits claims and have a proven track record of success.
Strategic thinking, experienced insight and carefully calculated courtroom tactics – these are the qualities that set our firm apart. Our lawyers are highly skilled legal advocates. Together, they have more than 45 years of ERISA litigation experience.
Over the years, we have helped hundreds of employees obtain millions of dollars in wrongly denied benefits. We assist clients with issues involving all types of ERISA-covered benefits, including:
- Retirement benefits such as 401(k) plans, defined benefit plans, defined contribution plans and other pension arrangements
- Disability benefits, including long-term disability (LTD) and short-term disability (STD) benefits
- Health benefits, including everything from denied pre-authorizations to denied reimbursement claims
- Life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment benefits (AD&D)
Our firm also represents union employees whose benefits are provided under multi-employer arrangements.
As a former union attorney, Joseph Creitz provides clients with unique insight into multi-employer benefits structures. He understands union processes and procedures and has maintained good working relationships with union representatives.
