Retirement Benefits

We ensure prospective and current retirees are afforded defined contributions, retiree medical benefits, ERISA, 401k, or 403 plan participation, disability retirement eligibility, and that management and investment fees charged by employer sponsored retirement plans are fair and competitive. Know your rights before you make decisions impacting the rest of your and your family’s lives.

Besides wages, retirement benefits are a valuable part of compensation. Often, employees don’t discover problems with the retirement benefits they understood they were receiving until after they retire. SSVW has assisted countless prospective and current retirees ensuring they are afforded the benefits to which they’re entitled, like:

  • Representing public employees against employers’ attempts to erode vested retirement benefits and contributions to the San Diego City Employees Retirement System (SDCERS), CalPERS, CalSTRS and others;
  • Challenging ERISA, 401k, or 403 plan participation, contributions and benefits;
  • Advising clients facing service or disability retirement decisions and benefits; and
  • Ensuring that management and investment fees charged by employer sponsored retirement plans are fair and competitive.
