I called and talked to clerks both times and neither could confirm that my pension would match dollar for dollar with what they provide. Their "max" may be a certain amount but their max could be a % of what I would normally get - terminology gets me. I tried to ask both clerks the question but they didn't seem to get what I was saying. e.g., if my pension guaranteed by my company is $1,900 per month, their "max" might be a prorated version or, say, $1,400. When it comes to government, I am always nervous of what they mean, especially when their representatives aren't sure themselves. Thanks for your response, however.
