Hi, thanks for submitting your question today. My name is John. I have over 13 years of legal and consulting experience in this area. I’m happy to assist you with your question today.
Who you really need to get a hold of is the plan administrator; not the company. The company may have changed hands etc., and may not even no who you are. The company made contributions to a plan that should have been administered in accord with the law. You don't know yet the status of the plan; whether it's funded or whether its in jeopardy. So, what I'd suggest you do is contact the Department of Labor
- Employee Benefits
Security Administration to request the most recent plan information. The Department keeps all plan documents and filing and will have the best and most recent information on the plan. It very well be that the plan was terminated/ abandoned and there are funds sitting in escrow for you with the Department or otherwise. You can contact the Department through their website here:
Once you have that information you'll then be able to make a claim on the plan or discuss with the DOL whether the plan is bankrupt and your portion of funds.
