After being injured in an accident, or suffering an illness that prevents you from earning a living, you have rights under the ERISA Act and other administrative laws that you must protect. It is unfortunate that so many people lose their rights to collect money benefits they are entitled to, simply because of missing the statute of limitations, or failing to follow through on a denied SSI or SSDI claim. You have legal rights to receive benefits, and the attorneys at the disability law firm of Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, are ready to help you protect them.

What are your legal rights under disability claims law?
If you are retired and collecting a pension benefit, you may be able to collect differential benefits for injuries or disabilities you sustained during your work years. A qualified disability claim lawyer can help you with the screening process. Filing in a timely manner is important to protect your rights to collect under the laws of the ERISA Act and Social Security. If you have been denied a Social Security Disability Insurance Claim, for example, you have only sixty days to file for an appeal. You may also be able to combine your benefits if you are entitled to worker's compensation benefits for on-the-job injuries.
Under current law governing supplemental security income payments, you have the right to:
- Retain a paid attorney to help file your claim and accompany you to hearings
- Request copies of the information that is in your records
- Receive a determination letter about the findings of the department
- You have the right to appeal a denied claim
- If English is not your primary language, you have the right to a free interpreter.
