While the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) sounds like it simply protects workers’ retirement funds, it actually protects a large range of employee rights as they relate to worker benefit plans. ERISA protects your retirement benefits, pension plans, 401k plans, profit-sharing plans, health care benefits, life insurance benefits, and disability benefits. ERISA makes certain that workers receive their benefit rights and that employers never fire or discriminate against their workers in order to deny them their benefit rights. If you have had a ERISA claim wrongfully denied or if you believe that your employer, insurance company, or union is violating your rights in relation to a benefit plan in Missouri or Illinois, call an experienced ERISA attorney today.
