PBGC Operations During the Government Shutdown

Message from Acting Director Alice Maroni

In the event of a government shutdown, PBGC will stay open for business. All of us at PBGC - federal employees and contractors - will remain on the job. We will continue to pay benefits to retirees and honor our obligations.

This is not new. PBGC remained open during past government shutdowns. This is possible because PBGC is different from most government agencies. Our funds are paid for by insurance premiums and plan assets, not taxpayer dollars.

All of us at PBGC believe that it is important to continue our work with the kind of fervor and dedication that America's workers and retirees deserve.
