Online Pension Transactions Through MyPBA

MyPBA is our secure online service that lets you handle certain common transactions with PBGC.

Who can use MyPBA?

  • You can use MyPBA if PBGC is the trustee of your pension plan.
  • You can set up your MyPBA account once your plan's information is loaded into our database. This can be a complicated process. You won't be able to use MyPBA until several months after we take responsibility for your plan.
  • You can use MyPBA even if you haven't started to get your monthly benefit from PBGC.

What do I need to sign up?

  • An email address
  • Your valid Social Security Number
  • Your PBGC case number

When can I open an account?

  • You can create your personal MyPBA account as soon as we have acquired your plan's information and finished loading it into our database.
  • It typically takes several months to set up the database for your account.
  • If you try to open an account too soon, you will get a message that there's no match to the plan name or case number yet.
