Pension Rights

Your pension is designed to protect your hard work after many years

You expect that your pension will support you after you retire. You count on your pension. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) regulates how employers and ERISA administrators handle employees’ retirement benefits. This federal law was originally enacted to protect pension benefits. If your pension benefits have had unauthorized changes or it has suffered a loss, you need an experienced ERISA lawyer to help you protect it. If you think your pension funds may have been mishandled, or if your employer has told you it is terminating the plan, we can help.

ERISA offers important protection for retirement benefits, whether under traditional defined benefit plans or direct contribution plans, such as 401(k) plans. ERISA was designed to offer protection for employees’ pension benefits. It is a very complicated law. An experienced ERISA attorney can help you understand it. We can examine your claim to determine if you are receiving appropriate pension benefits. We can help you if you are not.

We help employees protect their pensions. Your employer, union, or other ERISA administrator might fail to notify you of changes in your pension plan. The plan might invest unwisely and lose part or all of your pension or employee retirement funds. We evaluate your case to help you determine if your pension was mismanaged or paid incorrectly.
