I know that companies offering Defined Benefit Pensions have government oversite as to funding levels, etc. As someone who is now nearing actual retirement under such a plan, I am wondering what safeguards or protections I will have once I actually select an annuity and my company funds same within an insurance company or other entity offering such annuities. What are my risks of receiving zero after a short period of time?
