The nature of the error in the calculation is not an actuarial matter. My pension takes into consideration an amount funded by another (related) party. The plan administrator calculated the remaining portion owed using an incorrect amount assumed to be paid by the other party - thereby inflating the monies owed to me. Therefore they issued new paperwork to correct the error. The amount to be paid is now reduced. Again, they provided the estimates twice then issued the original pension paperwork consistent with the estimates - i.e. the apparently miscalculated this 3x.
