New Reuters News Article

A new article on the St. Peter's "church plan" conversion was published last week. Mark Miller, a columnist on retirement and aging for the international Reuters news agency, writes about St. Peter's in the context of the 2004 landmark case of the Hospital Center at Orange (HCO), whose own conversion was a prelude to gutting the pension plan to pay off the hospital's creditors. It's because of the HCO litigation, and subsequent decisions by the IRS, that most St. Peter's retirement plan participants are aware of the issue at all. The column has been published across the country and around the world by Reuters' affiliates. Read the article here.
