Current Missing Participants Program

For over 20 years, PBGC's Missing Participants Program has connected people, missing when their pension plans terminated, to their retirement benefits. Currently the program is open only to PBGC-insured single-employer plans.

Proposed Expanded Missing Participants Program

On September 20, 2016, PBGC issued a proposed rule that would expand its existing Missing Participants Program to cover terminated 401(k) and other defined contribution plans and certain defined benefit plans that aren't currently covered by the program. PBGC anticipates having the expanded program available in 2018 (for plans that terminate after 2017). We have listed more information and resources below:
