National Chrysler Retirement Organization explains risk of Salaried Pension “De-risking”

  • The NCRO is fighting to protect retirees when plan assets are transferred to an insurance company in de-risking.
  • Current defined benefit pension plan protections include those afforded by the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation and the Employee Retirement Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
  • Includes ongoing protection against default, by the federal Pension Benefits Guaranty Corporation (PBGC); ongoing disclosures/other fiduciary protections under the Employee Retirement Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
  • Employers “de-risk” pension obligations by transferring plan assets/liabilities to an insurance company (involuntary “annuity buy-out”), or directly onto plan participants (voluntary lump sum buy-out) and getting the pension liabilities off the books.
  • Pensioners lose Federal protection and stripped of both PBGC guarantees and other ERISA protections.
  • Lump sums lack both adequate disclosure and adequate funding of the plan for remaining participants.
