Incorrect SSA Potential Private Retirement Benefit Information Letters?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else received calls from clients stating their former employees have received SSA Potential Private Retirement Benefit Information Letters when they took full distributions years ago?  In the last week, we've received calls from several and in every case the participants were reported with a code D on a form 8955-SSA at some point in the past. The oldest one was from 1994! 

Anyone aware of any issues at the DOL that might have resulted in this, or aware of something that has been released about this that I might have missed?

If a “MAY” letter results in someone submitting a claim, consider following carefully ERISA § 503 and the plan’s claims procedure, including notices about time limits to seek a review and a time bar on a challenge in court or arbitration.

No, not yet. What do these letters say? Would it be possible to post a fully redacted copy of one such letter?

This is my impression.   Before you filed these electronically their input on the part of the government was hit and miss.
