Pension Benefits

Comments Off on Pension Benefits

Feinstein Doyle Payne & Kravec, LLC attorneys represent Boeing retirees in a pension benefits class action.

This pension benefits case, entitled Society of Professional Engineering Employees in Aerospace, et al. v. Boeing Co., et al., is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas.

The Boeing Retirees are represented in this pension benefits class action by attorneys Bill Payne and Joel Hurt, together with the law firm Murphy Anderson and attorney Tom Hammond. The Boeing retirees claim that they have been denied early retirement pension benefits and accompanying healthcare benefits.

The Boeing retirees contend that, under their employee benefit plans and the collective bargaining agreements between the employees’ union and Boeing, the sale of Boeing’s Wichita, Kansas factory activated their right to pension benefits.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas recently issued two important orders. The first denied cross-motions for summary judgment and is permitting the case to proceed to trial. Trial dates will most likely be set at a February 19, 2013 status conference.

In its second ruling, the Court directed that the group of former Boeing employees will have their pension benefits claims decided by a jury.
