Pensioner Verification Letters - 20 January, 2012

Please find attached a copy of the Pensioner Verification letters that were mailed to Greyhound Western Plan Pensioners on January 6, 2012 by Towers Watson. The first is a letter for pensioners who are receiving a joint and/or survivor pension and the second letter is for all other pensioners. If you haven't received a copy of this letter from Towers Watson in the mail, please download, print and fill out copies for yourself. In the event that Towers Watson does not receive confirmation from a pensioner before the deadline of February 6, they will be sending two further letters at monthly intervals before any payments are suspended. Towers Watson recognizes that some of the pensioners could be snowbirds and they will take this into consideration before suspending any payments.
