    I am receiving an early pension from Delta. In August 2018, as a senior citizen, I received a letter regarding a potential offset to be deducted from my pension if I was taken early social security benefits, I immediately called them to advise I was not taking any social security benefits, so please do not deduct any offset for it does not apply. Although I took care fo this, (so I thought) I recently received a second letter stating that the offset will be deducted. After a second call, Delta Service Center decided to make the correction but I will need to wait until January 2019 to be made whole again. I am a senior citizen and rely on my pension money. I escalated hoping to get back immediately the money taken from me in error and they actual placed blame on me without giving me the benefit of the doubt. This is not the Delta Airlines, that I learned to love and be proud of.

    Decent health insurance, keeps getting more expensive every year. The 401k plan is one of the best around.
