William W. Barrow - LyondellBasell

Dating back to the 1989 spin-off of Lyondell Chemical Company from Atlantic Richfield, we have served retirees of LyondellBasell. Our service is the development of highly individualized retirement recommendations which incorporate your needs and desires for retirement. Based on your specifics, a strategy is developed which will help to optimize benefits accrued in the Lyondell Chemical, Equistar, and LyondellBasell pension plans as well and the Lyondell Chemical Company 401(k) plan. As retirement approaches, a series of major decisions must be made regarding benefits which may have taken decades to accumulate. These decisions are often irrevocable once elected. How these benefit elections will affect your retirement is thoroughly evaluated and discussed. Once retired, the development of reliable and sustainable retirement cash flow is the focus of our work.

William Barrow also works with Exxon Mobil downstream employees.
