Wilmington Pension And Retirement Plan Appeal Attorneys

You have worked hard and contributed toward your future retirement funds. When the time comes to collect those benefits, you expect to receive the money you earned. Many people are stunned when they encounter problems in obtaining their pension or retirement plan money.

Handling Pension Appeals For Delaware Clients

Do not waste time — contact our office immediately to begin the process of responding to the situation. At Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, we have more than 19 years of experience representing clients in a variety of employment law-related matters, including ERISA issues and lawsuits.

ERISA, the Employment Retirement Income Security Act, is a federal law that governs benefit plans provided by private employers. Most people employed by private companies obtain health, life, disability and pension benefits through their employer. ERISA sets forth responsibilities for all parties involved in the administration of these benefit plans.

Resolving a dispute regarding pension or retirement payments can quickly become complex. Our Wilmington pension and retirement plan appeal lawyers handle appeals over all types of benefit plans. The process requires complying with the specific steps and requirements under ERISA.

  • First, we can help you pursue an administrative remedy if your benefit claim was denied. This is an important and necessary step and a requirement to filing any future ERISA lawsuit.
  • After we have exhausted the potential administrative remedies available and you have not received your benefits, we will file an ERISA lawsuit. Ideally, we have helped you build a strong administrative record during the earlier steps, which now will form the basis of the lawsuit.

Act Fast To Protect Your Retirement Or Pension Benefits

Obviously, the earlier we step in, the better. Regardless when you decide you need legal help, we are ready to assist and take aggressive action necessary to pursue the pension benefits you earned and deserve.
