    ERISA Basics Webinar Series 4: Benefit Claims: Administrative Procedures & Litigation Overview

    3 PM EDT

    ERISA requires extensive procedures for the processing of claims and appeals (“pre-suit appeals” or “requests for review”). Claimants are required to exhaust administrative remedies under 29 U.S.C. § 1133 prior to filing a lawsuit under 29 U.S.C. § 1132(a)(1)(B). This program will cover the statutory basis for pre-suit appeals, timelines for submission and response, guidelines for what should be included in the requests for review, guidelines for what the Department of Labor Regulations require in communications from plan administrator, and other rules and regulations governing pre-suit appeals.

    Select your state to learn more about the credit details and status of CLE application. Credit is not available for states not listed.

    If the plan administrator upholds its decision on appeal, claimants are entitled to file a lawsuit under 29 U.S.C. § 1132. This program will also cover topics arising in the litigation of employee benefit claims, including applicable rules of civil procedure, typical motion practice, the applicable standard of judicial review, the availability of juries, discovery, evidentiary considerations, and disposition of claims. The panel will further discuss the doctrine of conflict of interest as it arises in ERISA benefits litigation. The panel will address both procedural concerns and strategy considerations of both the claimant/plaintiff and the defendant/plan administrator.
