Premium Payment Instructions & Contact Information

Payment outside of My PAA is permitted for any filing and is required if multiple filings are uploaded at the same time (i.e., a batch upload). However, separate payments must be submitted for each plan. Do not combine premiums for two or more plans into one payment.

The preferred payment option outside of My PAA is Pay.gov, which is fast, secure, and free for premium payers.

For fast, automatic posting to the premium account, the payment must reference the plan's employer identification number, plan number and the plan year commencement date. If you send a paper check, make the check payable to the "Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation" and include a completed paper check voucher. Note that these addresses are also used for all prior year premium filings and payments (outside of My PAA).

  • Pay.gov for secure electronic payments:
    Go to http://www.Pay.gov. This is a direct link to the PBGC Premium Insurance Payments Form. This link can also be found at www.Pay.gov. You will be automatically directed to a secure site. Select Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation from the Agency List. You will need the plan's EIN, PN, and Plan Year Commencement Date to complete the payment. Please be sure your account does not have an "ACH Debit Block".  If your account has an "ACH Debit Block", please provide the PBGC Company ID 1601000603 to your financial institution before you submit your payment so they may authorize PBGC to debit your account.  Without this authorization, your financial institution may reject the processing of your payment.  A Debit Block is the most common reason for failed ACH payments. Transactions on your bank statement will appear as:  PBGC Premium Payment.
