Mission Statement

The Pension Action Center strives to improve retirees’ and workers’ standard of living in retirement through individual case advocacy; referrals to appropriate programs and professionals; and issue analysis and reform of public policy. The center, which is part of the Gerontology Institute at UMass Boston, focuses on the experience of participants in retirement plans throughout its work. Because of its clear focus, the center is a one-of-a-kind organization in New England that touches the lives of thousands of people.

Description

The New England Pension Assistance Project and the Illinois Pension Assistance Project, the individual case advocacy arms of the Pension Action Center:

  • provide comprehensive assistance on private or public pension issues at no cost;
  • unravel complex pension plan documents and calculate benefit amounts;
  • digs in to search for lost pensions, spending the necessary time that others just cannot give;
  • have recovered over $43 million in pension benefits that were earned but, for whatever reason, were not paid.

The New England Pension Assistance Project has been operating for over 19 years and is one of six pension counseling projects funded by the U.S. Administration on Aging. The Illinois Pension Assistance Project began serving clients in July, 2012, and is funded by a grant from The Retirement Research Foundation.
