Are your disability plans a source of litigation? Learn how to hone in on troublesome issues when reviewing your plan documents.
Many employers offer disability plans to their employees, but many plans are as much a source of litigation as they are a source of benefits to the disabled. Disability plan administration should focus on a consistent claim and appeal process that is understood by the participants and the person or committee that decides claims and appeals. Too often a breakdown in communication results in frustrated expectations and litigation. This on-demand webinar focuses on the basics of administering the plan, because it is the basics that determine who is entitled to benefits. Case law - other plans’ litigation - are a source for how to administer your plan and minimize the risks of litigation.
