17:47 EDTHIGHartford Financial extends pension buy-out to 13,500 vested participants
Hartford Financial disclosed in a regulatory filing that In September 2014, the company extended a limited time voluntary lump sum offer to approximately 13,500 vested participants in the U.S. qualified defined benefit pension plan who had separated from service, but who had not yet commenced annuity benefits. These participants have until November 2014 to elect to receive their benefit in a lump-sum payment, rather than as an annuity. The company will make the payments in December 2014 using assets from the U.S. qualified defined benefit pension plan. The funded status of the plan is not expected to be adversely impacted by this program. Depending on the acceptance rate of participants, the company may recognize a settlement charge to net income in Q414. If the acceptance rate is high enough to trigger a settlement charge, the likely high end of the range for a charge is approximately $140 after tax. The charge would be offset by a corresponding increase in accumulated other comprehensive income and therefore not impact total stockholders’ equity.
