DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Thousands of Delphi retirees are looking for answers.

Congressman Mike Turner is in Dayton meeting some of those retirees.

He is holding a closed-door round table discussion at his district office in downtown Dayton.

20,000 retirees lost their pensions five years ago in the wake of the federal government bailout.

Turner is one of several lawmakers working to restore their pensions ever since.

Congressman John Boehner sent out the following statement about the anniversary:

“This ‘anniversary’ calls for anything but a celebration. We’ve seen a sheer lack of transparency from the president and his administration on the delay of the Delphi Salaried Retirees’ final pensions and benefits. In fact, these retirees have waited five years now for the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation to complete the basic documentation necessary to begin the benefit determination process – it’s completely unacceptable. That’s why Ohio Delegation Republicans recently issued a formal inquiry into the PBGC’s delay, and I’m going to continue offering my support to Congressman Mike Turner and the rest of the Ohio Delegation as we continue to push this administration for answers.”
