Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC)

On June 29, 2015, President Obama signed legislation to extend the HCTC through the end of 2019. We will update this page with information for our customers as it becomes available. You can also sign up for our blog, Retirement Matters, to get the latest updates from PBGC.

HCTC is an IRS tax credit for health care insurance premiums, which may apply to certain individuals who are 55–65 years of age and are receiving benefits from PBGC.
