Delphi Retirees See Win in Fight for Pensions Against Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp

A new court ruling is making Delphi retirees hopeful they will see their pensions restored after years of fighting. U.S. District Court Judge Arthur Tarnow in Detroit ruled the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. must release documents requested by the group of about 20,000 Delphi retirees who are suing to have their pensions restored. This five years after Delphi went into bankruptcy protection in 2009, giving responsibility of employee pensions to PBGC. Delphi's salaried retirees took a steep cut in benefits when their pensions were subsequently turned over to the PBGC, a decision that impacted about 20,300 Delphi retirees across the country, including thousands from Dayton. Union employees have received full benefits though the legal process has been protracted for the salaried retirees. In a conference with several Delphi employees, U.S. Rep. Mike Turner, R-Dayton, applauded the court decision.
