Does ERISA apply if I work for a government (federal, state, or local) agency?

Generally, the answer is no.  However, a government agency may have its own internal rules for appealing and its own time limits for both appealing and filing a lawsuit.  Also, in some cases there may be laws or regulations which affect your claim.  If you have a claim against a federal, state or local agency, you should speak to an experienced disability attorney who is also experienced in handling the federal, state or local agency claim.
