Do I Need a Retirement Issues Lawyer?
According to the ERISA, if your company offers the ability to participate in retirement plans, then they are also required to provide clear information and resources about them. If you are having trouble understanding the options available to you, or your company is not providing the resources that you need to understand or access your plans, there are steps that you can take.
A workers’ rights lawyer can help you better understand your plan and how to access it or set up necessary contributions. In the event that your employer is making it difficult for you to recover your retirement funds, a skilled lawyer can make sure that you are protected and able to access your money. Many people who are overwhelmed by their situation think that taking legal action will only complicate the problem. The truth is, the assistance of an attorney can help you get the results that you need far more quickly and efficiently.
Additionally, taking legal action against an employer who is impairing your ability to contribute or access retirement benefits can ensure that this behavior is not tolerated. By setting the precedent of legal action and holding your employer accountable, other employees in the future may not need to face the challenges that you have faced.
