    Fidelity Pension Misinformation- AT&T Employees 65 and Over
    11/13/20 - International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 21
    NOTE: This message only applies to AT&T employees age 65 and over. While investigating concerns raised by members IBEW 21 has found that Fidelity is advising employees age 65 and over, who either retired or are retiring this year, that they are not eligible to defer their pension payment date (aka Benefit Commencement Date) to next year. This is incorrect. Although the AT&T/Warner Media Pension Benefit Plan generally states that you may elect to start receiving your pension benefit as soon as your retirement date (aka Termination of Employment date) or the first (1st) day of any month following your retirement date and before reaching age 65 (aka Normal Retirement Age), the bargained Midwest Program portion of the AT&T/Warner Media Pension Plan has a Deferred Lump Sum option, which supersedes the general language of the Plan.
