Claims Process Poll from April 20, 2010 Webinar:
April 20, 2010, Webinar Poll:
Nortel's insolvency will result in reduced pension, medical insurance, life insurance, and severance payments to former employees Although the exact amount of the impact may not be known for some time, the latest estimate is that pensions would be reduced by 31% while company-sponsored medical and life insurance will disappear entirely. Severance for terminated former employees would await settlement of the estate and likely get only cents on the dollar.
Voters selected the category which applied to them, depending on whether they are an existing pensioner or survivor of a pensioner, a deferred pensioner (eligible for a Nortel defined benefit pension once old enough), or a terminated employee (if they are terminated and an eligible deferred pensioner, they used the deferred category).
"Severe" would include impacts like personal bankruptcy, moving to reduce your costs, selling assets, foregoing necessities, or requiring public assistance. "Moderate" would include impacts like going back to part-time work if already retired, foregoing vacations or avoiding other discretionary expenditures. "Minor" would include impacts like requiring careful budgeting or always shopping based on price.
