I am a widow and i have been for 10 years now when my

i am a widow and i have been for 10 years now when my husband passed away at that time through confusion i didn't file for his pension from his job so recently i did after i realized i was entitled to it since we were married at time of death. i received a letter from his company but they didn't state how much or if i would receive a lump sum. just that i could receive monthly payments nor did they state for how long. so my question is can i ask for a lump sum and exactly how much it is? cause i am clueless as to what i need to do? when i call they say well this has to go somewhere else to another dept and you will have to wait it is as though they really don't want to talk to me i know that at this time he would be 70 1/2. so i need to know what are my rights. i am in South carolinaJA: It's only $5 . Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in South Carolina and his company is in South Carolina but the headquarters is out of Philly PaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: When i 1st called they asked me if i was the living wife were we together at time of death i said yes. they said i had to send the death certificate and the marriage license to them and i did.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: yes, what are my options they are saying that i can sign to receive a monthly payment, but it doesn't state how long. i don't know how much the entire amount is nor do i know if i am entitled to receive a large sum? which someone told me that i could not from the company an outsider?

I have an employee benefits issue. They changed from a

I have an employee benefits issue. They changed from a pension plan to 401k accelerated plan. You had to be at the company for 5 years and be over 55. I was 2 months shy of the 5 years. My benefit was to go from 125% 401K match to 150% - would have gotten the 150% match in two months. I had been at the company for 3 years as a contractor prior and became a full time employee as a turnover. Since it took some time from the time I applied and then a few weeks to go through HR who wanted me to have a start date of July to be half a year - I missed out. Do I have a case to make? I am retiring soon and the difference in pension would be from $280/month to approximately $1400/month
