Electronic Reading Room

The Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996 (E-FOIA) contains a provision which requires agencies to permit the public to inspect and copy records that are likely to become the subject of multiple FOIA requests, provided the records were: (1) created after November 1, 1996; and (2) released under FOIA on or after March 31, 1997. In furtherance of Executive Order #13392, "Improving Agency Disclosure of Information," Paul Chalmers, Deputy General Counsel, has been appointed Chief FOIA Officer for PBGC.

E-FOIA also requires agencies to make copies of records that will be the subject of multiple FOIA requests available electronically, thus avoiding the need to submit a written FOIA request to the PBGC.

Some of these records are available for inspection and copying at the PBGC's Public Reading Room and FOIA Requester Service Center 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20024-2101, or they can be downloaded from this page.

FOIA Requester Service Center

In order to check on the status of a pending FOIA request you can call the FOIA Requester Service Center at (202) 229-4040. TTY/ASCII users may call 711. If you have any concerns as to the service you have received, please ask to speak to the FOIA Public Liaison to resolve any issues.
