When I retired in 2004, I received a statement from the
When I retired in 2004, I received a statement from the Social Security Administration that I was eligible for two small pensions. One pension was from Great Western Bank and the other was from Hughes Aircraft Company. I received the pension from the bank, but the pension from Hughes was never received. I have written to Raytheon and Boeing who purchased much of the assets, but I have never received a reply. The amount of the pension was very small (approx. $26 a month) but after all these years, it can add up. Raytheon and Boeing never answered my letters. I have read that after the Hughes sale, the whole pension matter ended up in the courts. Evidently, the government had some form of paperwork that I was entitled to this small pension but no one is willing to help or even answer my letters. The amount is too small to hire an attorney, but will I have jurisdiction if I sue both Boeing and Raytheon in Small Claims Court?

I recently contacted my Target Pension Plan to find out why
I recently contacted my Target Pension Plan to find out why had not been contacted at the age of 65 about pension payments. The agent said he did not know but I was eligible for payments now. I am currently 69 years old. He said the longer you wait to receive payments the higher they become. My question is since I was not informed by them can I receive the amount available at age 65 and retroactive amount for the last 5 years or do I have to accept the higher monthly amount and begin now. Thank you so much for your help.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: Pension Plan is from MN I currently live in FLJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No.
Type your question hereTime Warner cable was bought by
Type your question hereTime Warner cable was bought by Charter communications. Charter froze the Time Warner pension plan and created their own savings plan called the retirement accumulation plan. We are being told that we will have access to the funds upon retirement or termination of employment. If Time Warner Cable no longer exists and Charter is not continuing the pension plan then how can they legally block us from taking the lump sum?
Not sure if this is age discrimination or not. I received an
Not sure if this is age discrimination or not. I received an email from my employer, General Electric, around June 1st, notifying about 268 employees that they are eligible for a Voluntary Incentive Retirement Plan, offering one half of annual salary for people who accepted the plan and elected to retire on July 31st. Although I had about two months to train someone, my boss considered my position critical and would not let me accept the retirement package, with no offer of any retirement package in the future. He wanted me to stay an extra couple of months, with no incentive to stay except my normal salary. Because I was ready to retire and saw no reason to stay, i elected to retire on June 30th. I have no idea if I was the only one who was refused this offer because HR would not let me know. I am 68 years old and was ready to retire. Do I have a case for receiving any compensation on my retirement?

According to the ERISA fact sheet: "You immediately vest in your own contributions and the earnings on them. This means you have earned the right to these amounts without the risk of forfeiting them. But note – there are restrictions on actually taking them out of the plan." This is from this link: https://www.dol.gov/ebsa/faqs/faq_consumer_pension.html. Can you tell me what they mean about restrictions on actually taking the money out of the plan? What restrictions can they impose?
