Benefits for Non-ERISA Long-Term Disability
Our Maryland Firm Provides Helpful & Knowledgeable Counsel
Most insurance policies are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974. But what about those policies that aren't? Private policies - such as those purchased by doctors, attorneys, or other professionals - often don't fall under ERISA, and are instead regulated by state law.
In a non-ERISA claim the following benefits can apply:
- If you file a lawsuit, you can file in a state court rather than a federal court for ERISA claims
- State courts are typically more understanding of and friendly to plaintiffs
- You have the right to a full judge or jury trial
- You can be afforded a broader and more complete discovery process
