The ERISA landscape has been evolving continuously. The U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) new regulations on disability claims procedures, which took effect in April 2018, aimed to give additional protection to claimants and ensure impartial review of disability benefit claims. This new development created a big shift on several existing benefit plans which were subjected to revisions to conform with the new rules.
