As a United pilot, your Pilot Retirement Account Plan (PRAP) 401(k) is your primary way of saving for retirement. RAA is proud to offer professional investment management for your 401(k) through Schwab’s Personal Choice Retirement Account (PCRA).
For eligible legacy United pilots, your pension plan is now administered and paid by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC). The A Fund for legacy Continental pilots was frozen in 2005 and the plan defines the benefits you receive when you retire, based on time of service and final average salary. United also contributes on your behalf to a Retiree Health Account (RHA), which can be used upon retirement to pay for qualified medical expenses.
RAA can help you understand how these benefits fit into your overall picture, as well as how to optimize your available options to prepare for retirement. We can also work with you to determine which benefit plan(s) work best for your needs, including pre- and post-retirement health care plans, union benefits, and government benefits.
For over 30 years, RAA has assisted pilots and their families with a variety of financial planning services including 401(k) management, comprehensive financial planning, retirement planning, investment management, estate planning, benefit reviews, tax guidance and return preparation, insurance guidance, income planning, and Social Security and Medicare guidance, as well as many others.
