Steps to a New MyPBA Account

MyPBA is our secure online service that lets you handle certain common transactions with PBGC. You can sign up after your trusteed pension plan's information is loaded into our database, typically several months after we take responsibility for your plan.

Here's how to sign up:

  1. Go to
  2. Click on "Apply for an Account" to get started (or, click "Show Me How" for tips and more information)
  3. Enter your pension case name or the PBGC case number assigned to your plan

    Click on "Show Me How" for tips and more information

    If you get a screen saying your plan name or case number does not have a match, it means your plan information is not ready in our database. If you need assistance, call our Customer Contact Center at 1-800-400-7242.
