Retirement matters Blog

Welcome to our Blog!

Thanks for visiting PBGC’s brand-new blog.

First, we know some of you are asking: Why does PBGC need a blog?

Well, our mission is to protect pensions, and we’re proud of the job we do.

Elsewhere on this website you’ll find tons of information about all aspects of the agency’s work. Important information—often technical, sometimes complicated.

But on this blog, we want to keep it simple. Here, our communications team will tell PBGC’s story in a conversational way, zeroing in on how we protect retirement security. We’ll tell you how we work with employers and employees to preserve pension plans. How we make sure retirees get their pensions when companies can’t keep their promises. How we promote our mission to strengthen retirement security.

In addition, we’ll link to the most relevant facts, figures, news stories, and videos about the world of pensions and retirement security. And from time to time we’ll show you the human side of PBGC, by sharing the observations of Director Josh Gotbaum, our in-house pension experts and other members of our staff.

So, welcome, and let’s get down to business.
