My late husband was on worker's comp until he died at the age of 57. We never talked about a pension but I am sure that he had one where he worked. Because of things that happened (harassment) after he went on comp, I am reluctant to call his prior place of employment to inquire about benefits.

Would my husband have lost his pension or IRA when he became disabled and on comp?

If not, how do I find this info?

Nelson from Michigan
whether your late husband was vested and eligible for pension benefits would be based on a number of factors but having a work injury would not, by itself, make him ineligible.
if he was in a union, you might find out additional information from them. if he had legal representation for his comp claim, his atty might have information.
contacting former co-workers may give you the name of the pension fund that you can contact directly.
if he was a public employee, the state of michigan has an agency that would administer their pensions.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
Thanks. Sorry, I could not reply sooner.
