About Us

Given today's dynamic workforce, it is just as common for companies to merge and go out of business as it is for workers to change jobs. A result of this shifting workforce is that retirement plans can be left behind, lost or forgotten about until it is time for workers to retire. Even in the best of circumstances, workers can have questions about their retirement plans, but not know where to turn for help.

This is where PensionHelp America comes in. By connecting individuals to the resources that can help them find the answers to their questions, PensionHelp America provides a valuable service to millions of Americans.

PensionHelp America is a service of the Pension Rights Center, a nonprofit consumer organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the retirement security of America's workers, retirees, and their families.  

PensionHelp America is funded by the U.S. Administration on Aging, The Atlantic Philanthropies, and The Retirement Research Foundation. Learn more about our funders below.

U.S. Administration on Aging
In order to serve a growing senior population, the U.S. Administration on Aging envisions ensuring the continuation of a vibrant aging services network at State, Territory, local and Tribal levels through funding of lower-cost, non-medical services and supports that provide the means by which many more seniors can maintain their independence.

The Atlantic Philanthropies
The Atlantic Philanthropies are dedicated to bringing about lasting changes in the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people. The Atlantic Philanthropies are committed to making improvements in the lives of people who need change the most. Together with their grantees, The Atlantic Philanthropies endeavours to make lasting changes for people who are disadvantaged by their economic situation, race, nationality, gender, age, disabilities, immigration status, sexual orientation, political affiliation or religion.

The Retirement Research Foundation
The Retirement Research Foundation, based in Chicago, is devoted exclusively to improving the quality of life for our nation’s older adults, especially those who are vulnerable due to advanced age, economic disadvantage, or disparity related to race and ethnicity. Endowed in 1978 by the late John D. MacArthur, the Foundation has awarded grants totaling nearly $200 million.
