Evanston Retirement Plan Claims Attorney

When you contribute money from your paycheck to an employer-sponsored retirement fund, you expect the fund will be managed properly so you can receive the full benefits you deserve once you reach retirement age. Similarly, if you sign an employment agreement that provides for certain retirement benefits, you expect to receive what your employer agreed to. 

Unfortunately, too many employees in the Evanston area learn that their rights regarding retirement plans are being violated. If you have concerns, reach out to an Evanston retirement plan claims attorney at Bartolic Law as soon as possible. 

Retirement Plan Claims We Handle

Our law firm takes on disputes regarding different types of retirement plans, including Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans, Single-Employer Defined Benefit Plans, and Multi-Employer Defined Benefit Plans. We also handle disputes regarding pensions, and we can appeal a denial of your pension benefits. These cases generally fall under ERISA litigation, which can be highly complex. 

  • Terminations before the vesting of Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERPs)
  • Misapplication enhanced retirement qualifiers
  • Undercalculating credited earnings during foreign assignments
  • Misclassification of employment to try to deny full service credits
  • Misapplication of disqualifying employment clauses for people who want to work while retired
  • Denials of full employee years of service
  • Denying vesting service during third party management
  • Retroactive changes in how retirement terms apply
  • Change in the triggers that control benefits

Chicago employers often have retirement plans, including single or multi-employer pension plans, as well as offering SERPs to key players in the organization. At Bartolic Law, we know how employers work to challenge retirement benefits, and we stand up for all types of employees. 

Who We Represent

Anyone with a retirement plan can have a conflict, and our firm represents trade employees under collective bargaining agreements all the way up to senior vice presidents and C-level executives. We know that all kinds of professionals – physicians, attorneys, partners – can have such concerns, and we regularly take on disputes regarding ERISA “Top Hat” plans and long-term incentive plans. 

Our firm brings to the table a strong background in finance and accounting, an ability to interpret complex retirement plan terms, and experience with ERISA claims to each case we handle. 

ERISA Claims for Retirement Benefits

Employment retirement benefit plans fall under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which complicates the process of filing a claim. If you are not receiving what you agreed to, you will need to follow the complex procedures set out in ERISA to take legal action. 

Not every employment attorney understands ERISA and how to stand up for the rights of employees under the law. Bartolic Law regularly files claims in federal court to resolve ERISA benefit disputes, and we can determine the best course of action for your case.
