- Obtain further details about the class action lawsuit styled Janice C. Amara v. Cigna Corporation and Cigna Pension Plan
- The case is listed as number 3:01-cv-02361-JBA and is pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut
The My Cigna Pension class action lawsuit revolves around claims that Cigna made misleading statements in regards to the summary plan description. Anyone who has a Cigna pension plan before 1998 will want to file a claim in this lawsuit settlement. Plaintiff Janice Amara originally filed the claim in 2001 on her own behalf and on the behalf of an estimated 27,000 pension plan participants. She claims Cigna purposely failed to disclose significant reductions when it changed from a traditional defined benefit pension plan (the “Part A” Plan) to a cash balance pension formula (the “Part B” Plan) in 1998. On 12/20/12 the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut pretty much agreed with Ms. Amara and ordered Cigna to come up with a remedy for the disclosure violations.
