Guest pensioneer Posted January 24, 2011 Report Share Posted January 24, 2011 Curious if anyone has an opinion with regard to this situation: Employee leaves, DB plan pays lump sum distribution. Former employee returns later making a claim that the distribution was not calculated properly. Claim is based upon non-discretionary factors in plan. Former employer, who is also Plan Admin, responds with threats of civil suit on completely unrelated matters should the former employee pursue her benefits claim. This goes on for a while until it is clear admin remedies are exhausted. Would something like this be grounds for a civil action under ERISA 510? or is there something else? much appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
