  • Anon,

    With respect to ERISA disability policies I have only seen a shortened period to file an appeal (less than 180 days) during a second voluntary or mandatory appeal.

  • So I appreciate all the info you provide to insureds. Thank you very, very, very much with your site’s helpful information, I hope that I am managing my claim well enough to avoid a denial. I have been on claim since 2001 and my policy copy that I obtained then, and read now, clearly says to file an appeal within 60 days. 60 days seems a terribly short time period given all the needed time it seems I may need, if needed, with your help, to craft a successful appeal.

    Would you comment on something I read elsewhere, that the time frame to appeal older (pre 2002) Erisa policies is limited to 60 days and 180 days if the disability arose after?
