Be sure to ask for the equation (or at least the inputs they are using), especially if you take the lump sum. My husband and I have each taken a lump sum pension distribution when leaving a job, and in both cases the companies had some data significantly wrong--like crediting my husband for 30 years' service instead of 15.
