PENSION LAW MATTERS involving entitlement to and computation of disability pension benefits under private employment and public employment pension plans.
Disability pension benefits are paid to employees who cannot continue to work because of a disability.
An experienced New York Disability Pension Lawyer can help you make sense of the pension laws and pension plans, and help you get the pension benefits you're entitled to under your pension plan.
You contribute to a pension plan through your employer/union while working to protect your family and yourself if you are unable to continue working because of a disability.
However, sometimes the pension plan seems more concerned with keeping your money, than paying the pension benefits to which you are entitled.
Your entitlement to benefits are governed by the terms of the disability pension plan and applicable New York State or Federal pension law.
Disability Pension plans and pension laws governing them can be complicated and confusing.
A knowledgeable New York Disability Pension Lawyer can help you understand your rights and responsibilities under applicable pension law and take steps directed to get you what you deserve and what you worked so hard to secure.
Disability Pension Plans at times deny requests for disability pension benefits because they claim that you do not have sufficient years of service to qualify. Other times they may deny disability pension benefits because they contend you are not disabled as that term is defined in the pension plan; or on other grounds.
A knowledgeable New York Disability Pension Lawyer can work to determine whether the minimum service requirements can be satisfied. Such lawyer can also represent you in marshalling the facts and medical documentation directed towards proving disability as that term is used in the plan.
Disability Pension Plans and those working for them can sometimes be intimidating.
You should not have to face them alone.
You should not file or furnish information to your pension plan seeking disability pension benefits without the aid of a knowledgeable New York City Disability Pension Lawyer.
Your disability pension can be the key to a bright future for you and your family in the event you are no longer able to work.
