Navigating the Complexities of Aon Hewitt Disability Policy Appeals
If Aon Hewitt manages your group disability insurance policy, it’s crucial to be aware that Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) guidelines are likely applicable to your claim. Adhering to ERISA’s stringent appeal process and deadlines is essential when your disability benefits have been denied or discontinued. Typically, you have a concise period, often just 180 days, to file your appeal. Some policies might also afford you an optional secondary appeal.
If you have an individual policy, ERISA does not apply to your claim. To fully understand your legal options, it’s recommended that you consult a specialized disability lawyer.
