The confusion eases over ERISA statutes of limitations

Since the Supreme Court's ruling in Heimeshoff v. Hartford Life & Acc.Insur.Co., 134 S.Ct. 604 (December 16, 2013), which held that contractual limitations periods established by ERISA-governed employee benefit plans are enforceable, there has been much confusion about when such limitations periods commence and when they end.  A recent ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit has gone a long way in easing that confusion.
