Alvin H.

I worked for Consolidated Freightways in Dallas for 30 years. I was involved in a no-fault accident on 08/28/1998. Results from this accident were life changing. I had so many injuries and I had to retire at age 52 with 30 years. I have spent the last 14 years fighting with TWCC about medical, surgeries, and getting the help I needed physically. I had to move in 2002 from our dream home because of our financial situation. We reestablished ourselves with a lesser house and now with this 60% proposed cut it will mean we will probably be moving again. This cut will be a loss of $18,000 per year due to the orphan tag that comes along with the cut. I do get Social Security that helps but doesn’t cover all our bills. So many retirees will be affected by this pension cut and it’s just not fair that we worked hard for our retirement and families. It’s just like having the rug pulled out from under us. It will be a hardship to meet our obligations and maintain our current mortgage.
