Agent for Legal Process
We hope you never feel you need to resort to legal action to enforce your rights. However, if you feel you have cause for legal action after you have exhausted the plan's claims appeal process, a timely complaint may be served on the Company's General Counsel at:
Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc.
1166 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036
Service of legal process may be made upon the Plan Administrator or a Plan Trustee as well.
Limitations on Actions
The claims review and appeal procedures for the plans provide that no legal action for benefits may be brought by any participant or beneficiary unless the plan's claim review procedure has been exhausted (that is, all appeals of adverse decisions have been made).
Any such action (whether at law, in equity or otherwise) must be commenced within one year. This one-year period shall be computed from the earlier of (a) the date a final determination denying such benefit, in whole or in part, is issued under the Plan's claim review procedure and b) the date such individual's cause of action first accrued.
