Extensive Pension Portability Expertise

Over the years, with its broad exposure to a multitude of individual pension situations, RocheBanyan has developed an expertise in dealing with pension portability issues arising when an individual changes employer. These pension portability issues are complex from both a pension and tax perspective because they are unique to each individual situation along with the possible combination of pension plans that are involved.

If you are considering a change in employment, it is important to assess the implications of this change on your ultimate pension entitlements. It is best to be informed before or immediately after the change in employment to ensure that you maximize your pension entitlements and do not miss any time sensitive opportunities.
