    PBGC to Pay Pension Benefits for A&P Grocery Chain Employees

    WASHINGTON — The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation will pay retirement benefits for more than 21,000 current and future retirees of the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., a supermarket chain based in Montvale, N.J., that is commonly known as A&P.

    PBGC is stepping in because A&P has sold the majority of its assets in bankruptcy proceedings and most of the buyers declined to keep the plans going. The three plans that PBGC will assume ended on Nov. 30, 2015.
