Additional Pension Derisking Legislation Pending in Connecticut! has done it again!  Raised Bill No. 5455 entitled “An Act Concerning the Purchase of An Annuity to Fund Pension Benefits” has been introduced in the Connecticut legislature.  The proposed legislation requires disclosures to retirees impacted by pension derisking transfers and limits subsequent transfers of the annuity contract to “an entity that maintains a rating equivalent to an A or better from two or more nationally recognized rating agencies.”  This proposed legislation will enhance the ground-breaking legislation passed by Connecticut last year under Public Act 15-167 which went into effect on October 1, 2015, providing creditor protections to retirees in pension derisking transfers.
