Long-Term Disability (LTD)

Toledo Long-Term Disability Attorney Assists Clients

ERISA law firm in Ohio works to obtain benefits

Even when employees and the businesses they work for set aside funds to pay for long-term disability (LTD) coverage, collecting the benefits might be complicated. These plans are governed by the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This act offers protections that covered individuals might not be aware of. At David E. Friedes & Associates in Toledo, As an attorney with decades of experience in the field of disability benefits, if you have questions or believe you have been wrongfully denied coverage, I’ll analyze the terms of your long-term disability policy in detail and press for proper treatment. Throughout the Toledo area and in other locations, my firm strives to achieve prompt, favorable resolutions when clients are unable to work for an extended period of time.

Accomplished Ohio LTD lawyer advises on private and public benefit claims

Over decades handling Social Security Disability claims and other benefits matters in Ohio, Michigan and New York, I have helped numerous people obtain the disability payments they have earned through hard work. My firm can advise you on various subjects related to long-term claims, such as:

  • Private plans subject to ERISA — Disputes relating to plans that fall under ERISA are litigated in federal court. If you work for a private employer and believe that your claim was not reviewed in good faith, I understand the special rules and procedures that apply in these cases. My firm knows how to counter unsupported assertions made by insurers and administrators and develop an effective argument for clients pursuing full LTD benefits.
  • Ohio School Employees Retirement System (SERS) benefits — The School Employees Retirement System of Ohio (SERS) was created to support Ohio school employees in their retirement. Laws regulating Social Security benefits could affect payouts under this plan and give recipients less than they were expecting. I counsel clients on the impact of these regulations and other aspects of SERS and State Teachers Retirement System (STRS) benefits.
  • Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) benefits — If you have worked for the state and are concerned about long-term disability coverage or another aspect of your Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) benefits, I’ll explain how your age, length of time on the job and other factors might affect your situation.

Working with an experienced benefits lawyer can maximize the likelihood that you will secure the compensation that you’ve earned while you are unable to work due to a medical condition. I have a detailed understanding of ERISA law and can help you use the system to your advantage.
