Welcome to PBGC

Your pension benefit is safe and secure. You are our customer, and we look forward to serving you.

If you are currently receiving a pension benefit, your payments will continue without interruption. If you are not yet receiving a pension benefit, we will begin paying you as soon as you are eligible and apply to receive your pension benefit.
