Frequently Asked Questions:

Make sure you don't settle for less! Every employment situation is unique, but no situation is “take it or leave it”. We will assist you in negotiating your compensation, benefits, and incentives package. Don’t leave dollars, benefits, and perks off the table!

Should I accept the retirement package being offered?

Be very careful before you accept ANY retirement pay, plan, or program! Your retirement can be structured to provide more beneficial tax treatment and better opportunities for benefits, such as gap health insurance.
It depends upon your situation as to how you should receive retirement pay as there are potential tax risks. In addition, payments may impact your eligibility for incentive compensation. Call us to see how your retirement package should be structured, so we can evaluate whether your ultimate receipt of the funds should be either lump sum payment, salary continuance, or as periodic payments.

I don’t think I can negotiate the retirement package I received because the company has established compensation ranges, fixed benefits, and certain incentives/perks, right?

Wrong! No retirement package is a “take it or leave it” situation. In fact, there are federal laws, such as the Older Workers’ Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA) which require certain provisions to be included in a retirement agreement and should be negotiated. You must consider Pension, equity/stock option, 401(k) and Supplemental Executive Retirement Programs (SERPs) and most importantly, all vesting issues. Don’t leave dollars, benefits, and perks off the table!

Contact us to be sure you ask for everything you have earned and deserve, such as the right amount of compensation, perks, equity, deferred compensation, benefits, and insurance coverage which others are receiving at retirement.
