bankrupt retirement pensions benefits
Free Case Evaluation From An Experienced Workers Compensation Attorney.
If my employer goes bankrupt, will I lose my retirement money?
You shouldn’t. The law requires your employer to keep your retirement money separate from the employer’s own funds but if your employer’s business appears to be failing, it’s worth your effort to ask questions about what’s happening with your retirement money.
In addition, plan fiduciaries must comply with the ERISA provisions that prohibit the mismanagement and abuse of plan assets. If contributions to a plan have been withheld from your pay, you may want to confirm that the amounts deducted have been forwarded to the plan’s trust or insurance contract.
Moreover, the Federal Government may insure some pension benefits. Traditional plans (defined benefit plans) are protected by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), a Federal Government corporation. If a plan is terminated because an employer has financial difficulty and cannot fund the plan, and the plan does not have enough money to pay the promised benefits, the PBGC will assume responsibility for the plan. The PBGC pays benefits after termination up to a certain maximum guaranteed amount. On the other hand, defined contribution plans, such as 401(k) plans, are not insured by the PBGC.
