Enforcing Benefits Claims for Public & Federal Sector Employees in D.C. & Chicago, IL

Federal and public service employees receive stellar benefits that are unavailable to many private sector workers. When you dedicate your career to teaching in the classroom or assisting others throughout the community, you are rewarded for your commitment with generous packages that cover disability, health insurance, and retirement benefits.

As the structure and policies of these plans differ between public and private sector employees, so does the process for appealing a denied benefits claim. If you are struggling with a medical issue or are nearing your retirement, your inability to receive the financial assistance you’ve earned can have devastating consequences. Successfully appealing a rejected benefits claim requires a professional with a specific skill set.
