Rosasco Lectures Again to Social Security Disability Attorneys on LTD Claims at NOSSCR Conference in San FranciscoFriday, October 2, 2009
I had the pleasure to lecture to Social Security Disability Lawyers this past Spring at the NOSSCR Conference in Washington, DC about "Winning Long Term Disability Claims at the Initial Level". They have invited me back to lecture on the topic of "Winning your First ERISA Long Term Disability Administrative Appeal" at their Fall NOSSCR Conference on October 16, 2009 in San Francisco. My good friend and colleague Pam Atkins, Esq (former President of NOSSCR) will be co-presenting this seminar which should be chock full of practical advice. The seminar description is below:
There was once a time when only large corporations offered their employees long term disability coverage. However, major insurance companies, such as Unum and MetLife, are now targeting the small employer benefits market with packages including group long term disability insurance. Therefore, it is likely that more of your clients will come to you with initial long term disability denials in the near future. If so, how do you do an ERISA long term disability administrative appeal?
This practical seminar by two experienced ERISA and Social Security practitioners will teach you how to: 1) request and review the claim file after a denial, 2) know the important ERISA time frames for appeals and decision making under the Department of Labor regulations, 3) understand the interaction between Social Security Disability and LTD claims, 4) develop additional medical and vocational evidence to support your appeal and 5) write a winning brief (or at least bolster the “administrative record” for federal court). Bring your questions to explore this potential growth area to your existing disability claim practice.
Hope to see you there!
