Pension issues are pretty common through the US for older companies. They're the ones with legacy pension plans.... and pension returns have not kept pace with pension requirements. A lot of companies have moved away from defined benefit plans and into defined contribution plans... which place the risk on the beneficiary instead of the provider.
