Pension Rights FAQs

 

We help clients understand their pension rights and claim the benefits they've eared, regardless of the type of company worked for or the type of pension plan involved. Services are free of charge.

 

We provide personalized assistance by:

  • Answering questions about complicated pension laws and how they affect your retirement;
  • Obtaining and explaining hard-to-find retirement plan publications, forms and other documents;
  • Correcting pension miscalculations and claiming retirement benefits that have been denied;
  • Tracking down benefits from past employers; and
  • Providing referrals to lawyers, actuaries, and other pension professionals as appropriate.

 

We can also assist with retirement income plans offered by private and government employers, including:

  • Traditional “defined benefit” pension plans;
  • Cash balance and other “hybrid” pension plans;
  • 401(k), 403(b), and 457 “defined contribution” plans; and
  • Money purchase and other profit-sharing plans.

 

Examples of the types of questions we typically address are:

  • Am I entitled to a pension?
  • What happens to my pension when I change employers?
  • Can I get pension benefits from my ex-spouse?
  • How can I claim my pension from a company that has merged with another or gone bankrupt?
  • What happens to my pension when I die? What happens to my spouse’s pension?
  • What if my pension is miscalculated or denied altogether?

 

Eligibility

Pension counseling projects provide assistance free of charge to anyone with a pension question or problem, regardless of

You can contact the South Central Pension Rights Project if

  • you currently live or work in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, or Texas, or if you lived or worked in the region while earning the pension; or
  • if the company or pension plan is headquartered or has operations now in the region, or if it had operations in the region when the pension was earned.
