Action : Re: AT&T Pension Plan Change Members / Retirees
Posted by Dave Skotarczyk on 2023/8/17 15:31:20 (461 reads)

This month, AT&T transitioned the annuity payments of 96,000 retirees and beneficiaries from
the AT&T Pension Plan to a life insurance company called Athene.

We have serious concerns about transactions like this. Annuity benefits transferred to life
insurance companies lose protection under the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC)
and are instead covered by the various state insurance guaranty associations, whose protection
levels can vary.

In addition, we have specific concerns about the business practices of Athene, which is owned by a private equity firm called Apollo Global Management.

We have created this online survey in order to better ascertain the impact of this
transaction among our retirees and to identify and connect with affected retirees.
