Question
I worked for Safeway for 20 years, with 15 years vested in the union. I am trying to find out about my pension. I left Safeway in 1996. cam out of the union in August of 1994.
My social security#  is 429-13-7616 and my date of birth is 05-16-1954. Need to know the amount of my pension. Can you help me?

Answer
You would need to contact your former employer for your pension amount and to start your pension.

If you cannot find that information try your union.

If you still cannot find it that you can try contacting
The Department of Labor at this website:

Department of Labor is in charge of ERISA which is the law governing pernsion plans in the U.S.
