Help on a Pension Question.
I worked for a company from 1980 until 1995. The company had a traditional pension plan during my time there. Now that I am a few years away from retirement, I called them last week and after almost an hour was able to speak with someone and request a pension estimate. They told me it would take 4 to 6 weeks and they would mail it to me.

My question is ...Is this a normal waiting period for something like an estimate? They acted as if it was a a big bother and I did not feel comfortable talking with the agent on the phone.

Also, who would I turn to(what agency) if I sense a complete lack of cooperation in the future?

Needless to say, I am paranoid about companies honoring pensions and I would never have stayed in that shithole for 15 years if a traditional pension was not part of my employment package.

Any help is appreciated.

1. I know when a state worker retires they put together a package with different options
Depending on spousal residuals and that sort of thing. I imagine that would not be instantaneously produced.
