New Tax Withholding Guidance for Pensioners

The IRS has issued new tax withholding tables. The new tax tables have been applied to the May 1, 2022 pension payments. This means that the amount of taxes withheld from pension payments went down, resulting in a higher net pension payment amount. To view the new amount of tax withheld from the pension payment, visit the Participant Portal.
