Pension Attorneys Protecting Your Rights, Nationwide
A favorite trick among dishonest pension plan administrators and fiduciaries is promising you a great pension plan through your employment, only to try to deny it as you near the age of retirement. What many people do not realize is that pension plans and their many benefits offered by private employers are actually shielded from undue tampering by the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) law.
ERISA law provides protection from various forms of pension plan tampering, such as:
- Bad, unwise, or unreasonable investment decisions
- Overpriced fees for investment options
- Misrepresentations, omissions, and undisclosed pension plan information

When a pension fund runs out of finances, the provider is required to notify you at least 60 days before the termination date that it will be terminated. If your pension is covered by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) — a federally chartered corporation that was established with the passage of ERISA — then the plan administration may need to come up with a payment schedule to provide you with the funds currently in your pension plan. If the PBGC does not insure your pension plan, and there was no mismanagement of its funds, then your pension rights might be terminated without a chance of appeal.
However, when there is reason to suspect that wrongdoing or mismanagement led to your drained pension fund, you can file a lawsuit against the pension administrator and/or its fiduciaries. This lawsuit will need to go to federal court due to the governing ERISA laws. At Kantor & Kantor, LLP, our team of pension attorneys have the ability to represent you in federal court, which means we can represent you no matter what state you call home. We will handle your case as if we were representing ourselves.
