Welcome to ERISA Pension Claims, which informs class action plaintiffs of progress on pension claim lawsuits. Currently we provide court documents for the following class action lawsuits:


We appreciate information relevant to these ERISA class action lawsuits and the pension plan conversions which affected the value of employee retirement benefits. Please contact us if you have information for any of these law suits.

The Hilton Pension Class Action Lawsuit concerns “backloading” of pension benefits so that little benefits are earned in the first years. It also concerns the vesting of pension benefits and counting all years of employment for that purpose.

The AT&T Pension Class Action Lawsuit, the CIGNA Pension Class Action Lawsuit. the El Paso Class Action Lawsuit and the Solvay Class Action Lawsuit concern the conversion of traditional employee benefit pension plans to cash balance pension plans, which significantly decreased the value of benefits for long term older workers. Such reductions violate the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
