Customer Question
I worked on Wall...

I worked on Wall street and was vested after five years. I worked there for 7 years. I never received my pension at 65. I am now 71 years of age. Has the statute of limitations run out for me to get my money?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

New York, N.Y.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

I believe that NY is an at will state and I was a full time employee.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am retired and now live in Florida. Each time I called the company they told me that they had no record of me working there. I do have records from Social security that says I worked there for 7 years.

Have you contacted the plan administrator to see if they have a record of your participation and to make application for benefits?
(I realize you you may have called the ex employer. The plan adminsistrator is different.)
