I am writing on behalf of colleagues working at my former

Hello,JA: Hello. How can we be of help?Customer: I am writing on behalf of colleagues working at my former employer, a major corporation. The defined benefit maximum pension has been paid at age 65. There is also an ESOP that was added a number of years ago.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The parent company is based in Illinois, and the affected employees are in other states. Employees requesting information are getting estimates in writing from the company. One person was told his defined benefit pension would be $2,426 a month at age 65, and $4,330 a month if he waits to draw it at age 70. Another person was given an estimate of $2,333 at age 65 and $4.164 at age 70. These are incredible numbers, a growth of 12% a year. Social Security only gives you 8% a year if you wait from 66 to 70. For the ESOP, the person getting the $4.164 was told the figure would be $2,138 at age 65, and $4,139 at age 70. Nobody can find any changes in the pension plan where the company said it would boost the payment in this substantial way at age 70. How can these numbers be legitimate? Is it possible the company simply changed the payout formula, simply boosting the retirement pension age to 70 without telling the employees?JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full-time, non union. I assume "at will" means you can quit or be fired at any time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Do I have to pay for this advice?
