The New England Pension Assistance Project, staffed by experienced pension lawyers and pension counselors, helps you understand your rights under pension law and claim the retirement income benefits that you have earned.  The assistance is free of charge to anyone with a pension question or problem, regardless of age, income, or value of the claim.

What We Do
The world of retirement income is a complex maze of federal law and regulation, corporate pension policies, Social Security, and financial investment. The Pension Assistance Project ensures that low and moderate-income individuals do not have to navigate this maze alone. Read More
