ERISA-Governed Pension, 401(k) and ESOP Claims

ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) governs almost all employer-provided benefits relating to pensions, 401(k) plans and employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs).

We have represented employees who have had issues with:

  • Failure to fund a plan
  • Refusal to distribute benefits
  • Benefit calculation (see McElroy v. Lockheed Martin case)
  • Eligibility
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Vesting issues

At Roboostoff & Kalkin, A Professional Law Corporation, we are experienced with the complexities of ERISA as it relates to these types of claims. Our lawyers are determined to get the best results for our clients. Contact us for a free initial consultation: 877-374-7270.

Act Quickly to Protect Your Rights

ERISA imposes strict deadlines for contesting and appealing denied or terminated pension, 401(k) or ESOP claims. If your claim has been denied or if you have any other type of dispute about your benefits, you must act quickly to preserve your rights. An attorney at Roboostoff & Kalkin can discuss your potential claim with you and explain what can be done to help you get your benefits.

Client Reviews
Just when I thought there was no hope to recover my LTD benefits, I found attorney Constantin Roboostoff. With his expertise, I was able to recover all of my back long term disability benefits. Other attorneys wouldn’t take my case because it wasn’t cut and dry. Mr. Roboostoff took the challenge and did an incredible job. Not only did he get my current disability benefits going, he also recovered all my back benefits. He was a true blessing and I would recommend him whole heartedly. CW
It was my pleasure to make contact with Scott Kalkin three years ago after other lawyers had turned me away and told me I would not succeed in my lawsuit. Thanks to Scott's thoroughness, dedication, and diligence, my lawsuit WAS successful and he saw me through to the end, which included putting legal pressure on the insurance company which had invested so much time, personnel, and money, in not paying me what was due.

As soon as I met with Scott, I could tell he was knowledgeable, resourceful, experienced, highly professional, and would be dedicated to getting me fair treatment. Scott has handled all interactions with my insurance company ever since. Being able to rely on him to represent me has been a huge relief for a chronically ill person. SO
