ERIC is not a government agency. ERIC does not provide advice on personal matters or matters relating to individual disputes. For such matters, you may wish to seek advice from a legal counsel, an accountant, an actuary, or contact the U.S. Department of Labor Employee Benefits Security Administration (866) 444-3272.
