When a beneficiary is underpaid by a pension/ retirement savings plan, the project helps them get the underpayment from the plan –i.e. a recovery. When a beneficiary is overpaid by a plan, the project helps them obtain a waiver of recoupment of overpayment by the plan, i.e. a recoupment avoidance).

Corporate mergers, bankruptcies, and a volatile stock market mean that more people than ever are in need of basic pension help. Navigating pensions is difficult at best – and nearly impossible for many.
