  • Requesting Lump Sum Benefits

    Asked by someone from Aurora, CO on 3/25/2019

    Upon reaching normal retirement age of 65 on 3/1/2019, I elected to request lump sum benefits of my pension plan. Representative informs me that I am not eligible for lump sum and may only receive monthly payments as I did not elect to do so within 90 days of termination. The plan states, 90 days of termination OR retirement, which I have now reached at age 65. How do I receive lump sum payment of my benefits upon normal retirement age without this prohibition? Please advise at your earliest convenience. Thank you! WH
