My pension portal indicates that my employer is not making twelve equal monthly payments to my pension account. My employer indicates that they are making payments and that the pension fund is not recording properly. I tend to believe the pension fund but I cant get documents to agree. HR has a history of mistakes with my pay (and a shaky record at best). I have been asking questions for about 26 months and have not received good answers from HR. My boss is supportive but expects HR to resolve it. My financial planner wants me to hire a forensic accountant and sue for records. I don’t want to lose my job or spend the money to sue. I am in an industry where even a lateral move means a major move for my family but failure to pay into my pension is a 20 year accumulation that won’t happen.
Any ideas on how to get records without becoming more of a problem employee? Has anyone worked with a forensic accountant? Any ideas about how to make the two entities work together. HR has been reluctant to do a video conference although I think my VP boss may insist.
I have a pension through a church agency that HR doesn’t want to keep around. The church pension is to my advantage, but I could join the other plan.
