Fighting for the Retirement You’ve Earned

You Deserve the Income You’ve Planned

If your promised retirement benefits have been denied or diminished due to your employer’s actions or inaction, you have the right to fight for what you earned. Despite the legal protections afforded to you by your pension or retirement plans, employers and plan administrators still make mistakes and/or fail to live up to their fiduciary obligations.

This can be confusing and scary. You’ve worked hard for a secure retirement. We’re here to help you keep the benefits you have earned.

Come talk to us if you feel you have been unfairly denied or seen an unexpected diminution in your:

  • Pension Plan
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”)
  • Retirement health benefits
  • Executive compensation
  • Other post-work benefits

We Know Your Rights

If you’re benefits have been denied or cut-down, you may have a case to get them back. We’ll fight for you. A pension attorney with DeBofsky Sherman Casciari Reynolds P.C., not only understands how ERISA protects your pension, but also has the skills and expertise to ensure your rights are preserved.

Know Your Rights

Employees gain vested rights to their pension benefit even before retirement, which means that once you have earned those rights, they cannot be taken away. If something seems wrong about what your employer is telling you about your retirement benefits, you should consult a lawyer.

Your rights can’t just be taken away from you.
