Consequently, a Personal Retirement Profile cannot be worked up for you.
Doug or Brad,
I received the following email from LANL-HR that may be worth posting.
You requested to attend a March 2, 2006 Group PRP [Personal Retirement Planning] session. Unfortunately, you do not meet the eligibility for retirement as you are not age 50. Consequently, a Personal Retirement Profile cannot be worked up for you.
I have cancelled your reservation for the March 2, 2006 session.

I replied as follows:
On my submission, I put in the intent to retire as of my 50th birthday, which is within 120 days of the contract transition date of June 1. How does this make me ineligible?
Are you saying that I can get no counseling with respect to UCRP retirement before I turn 50? That is absurd.
Makes you feel loved, eh?

A colleague and I work up Personal Retirement Profiles for any LANL employee or their spouse. We don't turn people away.
Contact me if our talents might be of use.
Now, much later in life, I begin to re-wonder about that. (mmmph...forry, vvey flipped out...there, that's better)
