Dayton, OH, July 22 2014 - Five years ago today, more than 20,000 Delphi Salaried Retirees had their pensions unjustly terminated in the wake of the Obama Administration's failed bailout of General Motors.
"This injustice will not be tolerated or forgotten and we will continue to move ahead until the Delphi Salaried Retirees receive the full and equitable treatment they deserve,” said Congressman Turner.
Today, Congressman Mike Turner met with a group of Delphi Salaried Retirees from the Dayton-area in a closed door briefing to discuss the progress that has already been made and to identify what future action must be taken.

Washington, D.C.—This week, Congressman Mike Turner (R-OH), Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), and Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) were joined by the entire Ohio Republican Delegation in a letter requesting that the Office of Inspector General conduct an inquiry into the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation’s lengthy delay in providing final benefit determinations for Delphi Salaried Retirees.  ~~
Despite the PBGC’s stated policy of issuing these determinations in three years, these retirees have waited in earnest for nearly five years to the day for the PBGC to complete the basic documentation necessary to begin the benefit determination process.
“This letter is a simple request for accountability," said Congressman Turner (R-OH). ~~ "~~ They’ve lost so much, and we won’t let up until they get the straight answers they deserve,” said Speaker Boehner (R-OH).  “The Delphi Salaried Retirees and their families have gone too long without adequate answers regarding their pensions,”said Senator Portman (R-OH). ~~
The letter was also signed by Ohio Republican Reps. Steve Stivers, Steve Chabot, Pat Tiberi, Bill Johnson, Bob Latta, Bob Gibbs, David Joyce, Brad Wenstrup, Jim Renacci, and Jim Jordan.
