i was just terminated from my job, and was offered a 3 month severance with benefits which eould take me thru ocober.. this was verbal, and now they are trying to say that i will not be eligible for the pension/profit sharing contribution for the year. i was 100% vested in october of last year, and the plan put in about 3 times what i contributed. the fiscal year started again in january. does anyone have any advice? can they do this legally?
