Right to employment benefit packages
When an employer offers an employment benefit package, the employee has a right to all the benefits offered in that package. Each employer's benefits package is different, and it often may depend on the pay scale or length of employment. The types of benefits that may be part of an employment package include the following:
- Retirement plans
- Long-term disability insurance
- Pension benefits
- Health care plans
- 401(k) plans
- Severance packages
- Life and Accidental Death Insurance
If your employer purposefully or negligently prevents you from obtaining your promised benefits, the Illinois employee benefits attorneys of DeBofsky, Sherman & Casciari, PC can help.

Illinois attorneys protecting employment rights through ERISA
Although an employer is not required to provide many employment benefits, once they offer a benefits package, they must follow strict legal regulations. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was enacted to ensure that plans involving pension, medical, surgical, sickness, disability, and death benefits are financially sound, so that they are available to employees as promised. By staying current with ERISA provisions, our Chicago employee benefits lawyers help protect employees' rights to plan benefits.
Chicago based lawyers securing social security benefits
In addition to the private and other benefits employers offer, our employee benefits lawyers understand the importance of securing your social security benefits, including retirement and disability benefits, as well as Medicare benefits. Even if you were initially denied these benefits when you applied, our attorneys can help you obtain benefits for which you qualify through an internal appeals process or by bringing an appeal in court.
