LTV Steel, Pension & Healthcare


If you haven’t seen this clip from last night’s AFL-CIO debate moderated by Keith Olbermann, please watch it.


My grandfather retired from LTV Steel way back in the 1970s. When he died, my grandmother initially continued her coverage under my Papa’s retiree medical benefit plan. She was also eligible to receive his pension, which was just enough to supplement her social security check.

When LTV filed bankruptcy, my Nana lost her eligibility for medical coverage through a technicality. She was a surviving spouse and not the employee himself.
