Understanding the ERISA claims process

At The Law Office of Jessica Taylor PLLC in Texas, we know that while you love the retirement and insurance benefits your employer provides you through the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, you dread dealing with ERISA's stringent federal and state rules and regulations when you have to make a claim.

What is Section 404(c) of the ERISA act?

ERISA, the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act, is a law that protects Texas employees’ private pension plans, such as the 401(k) and the 403(b). Another part of the law addresses 404(c) plans, which allow employees to manage their retirement account investments themselves instead of a fiduciary, who makes investments on behalf of employees in other plans.

How can I spot a bad investment?

With all of the opportunities that Texans, and Americans in general, have to make money, it seems there are just as many ways to lose it. Bad investments, bad management, bad economy and more. When you are a victim of investment fraud, however, it stings even more, and the consequences can be heartbreaking. Here are some tips you can use to sort out scams from legitimate investments. 

Why do I need a long-term disability insurance?

In an era where businesses all over Texas and throughout the U.S. are shifting more and more of the cost of insurance onto the shoulders of employees, it may seem that long-term disability is one of the benefits you can go without. You should consider this move from all angles, however, before making a final decision.

Who can receive benefits under COBRA?

If you are one of many Texans affected by job loss every year, your initial shock was likely followed quickly by fear of additional losses, including your benefits, home and maybe even your family. The uncertainty is a guarantee of sleepless nights and high stress levels for anyone. One thing that may give you a little ease is knowing that you do have an option for continued health benefits through the COBRA program.

ERISA law and gender-identity discrimination

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (commonly known as ERISA), is a federal law centering around the topics of tax and labor in the private industry. Since its establishment, ERISA has assisted employees across the country with pension and health plans. Similar to other employee benefit plans, this law equips employees with plan summaries, including fiduciary plans. While the law itself sets out to protect employees around the country, a recent incident in Texas pointed toward issues underlying these plans and how they may be more exclusive than once thought.

COBRA benefits can come at a high cost to employee

Many Texas employees enjoy employer-provided group health insurance coverage. The allowed coverage may also include coverage for spouses and other family members. The value of such health insurance can be invaluable. However, grave concern can arise about loss of coverage when an employee is no longer covered by the employment related health insurance.

What is ERISA?

Texan residents have a number of protections in place to ensure that they get proper pay, receive their benefits, and aren't cheated out of anything they're owed. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA, is just one of those many protections. But just what does ERISA do?
