Pensions are controlled by a law named the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). ERISA does not have a limitations period for benefits claims. However, federal courts have long held that the limitations period for these claims should adopt the state contractual statute of limitations. In your case that limitations period is 4 years, which time begins from the date you knew or should have known there was a dispute...in the case of pension payout that would be the date you were told of the pension payment amount.
