Friends in need.

Your March 13 article "Rollover Roadblock" confirms that workplace benefits that fit the needs of same-sex partners and retirees often require an extra push.

Once the Pension Protection Act was adopted, the human resource leaders at American Airlines and American Eagle promptly took action to amend each company's own 401(k) plan to authorize the nonspouse beneficiary rellover previsions. As cochairs of AMR's LGBT employee resource group, GLEAM, we couldn't be more proud of our employer's quick initiative. This stop makes it possible for all our LGBT employees to ensure our life partners are included, as the law intended.

Thanks for educating your readers too. We hope that LGBT employees and affinity groups across the country in companies of all sizes achieve similar strides in their workplace.
