PBGC Operations During a Government Shutdown

In the event of a federal government shutdown, PBGC will remain open for business and benefit payments will continue to be made on time.

PBGC stays open because we’re not funded by taxpayer dollars.  Instead, we’re funded by insurance premiums, investment income, and assets and recoveries from terminated plans. 

As always, we’re committed to providing outstanding customer service and making benefit payments on time.
