How to Find a Lost Pension

June 29, 2012 at 6:29 am Leave a comment

Perhaps you have a former employer that went out of business or was acquired by another employer and you did not receive a distribution from the pension plan after you left.  You may find yourself in this situation or possibly helping a parent or someone else.   The PBGC has created a resource for such situations at http://www.pbgc.gov/docs/finding_a_lost_pension.pdf.   The site has guidance regarding how to research the process and which documents to locate such as a benefit statement that shows you are entitled to the pension.   The guide also has contact information for those individuals who need additional help.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!   Please be sure to sign up for my blog and follow me on twitter.
