Late Retirement proceed

Recommended Posts

Client's husband died 10 years ago.  In 2019, she finds out that he set up his retirment plan with his company for spousal benefits.  When he died, she sent the death certificate, but the company failed to send her the money she was entitled to.  Now they have realized that she is entitled to this pension, and have paid her 10 years worth.  If she had received it in annual payments as it was set up, she would not have had to pay taxes as her income was too low.  Now, since she received 10 years worth, her tax liability is substantial.  Is there any recourse for this?

Yes.  Send the company a letter explaining the situation and why she should be reimbursed for the additional tax.  However, it is not a good time to be asking a lot of co's for money as so many are struggling.
