    I just got a "1099r" form from Mass Mutual Retirement .. "For my tax records". It shows a distribution from my pension.. which I have never taken.
    So either someone accesed my funds or this is a fake form for phishing.
    I googled the 1800 number from it. Nothing comes up.
    I will make calls today as it was after hours when I got it.
    I am guessing the 800 number will request account, soc sec, numbers etc.
    So will call pension fund to see what is going on.
    Just a heads up.
    I will post back any news.

    Baba gounj You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    I recall getting that letter it had to do something with 401K accounts. I thought it was an ad , since I don't have any accounts with Mass Mutual Retirement .
