My previous employer sent me a package regarding a lump sum

Customer Question

My previous employer sent me a package regarding a lump sum payout of my pension, or an annuity. This was mailed from NH, dated April 1, I am in NC and received the mailing in late May, past the May 16th determination date for a lump sum. I called, and was told I could take the annuity, sorry I missed the deadline for the lump sum. I explained that I just got it - there was no address forwarding, it was mailed to my current address. Can I force a lump sum payout???

You can still pursue it and negotiate the payment based on lack of receipt and now prompt demand for the payment.

If needed you can have a lawyer reach out to secure the payment.
