Major Data Sources and Availability

There are three major data sources used for the PBGC Data Tables – Form 5500 filings, PBGC Premium filings and the PBGC itself for operational data. Due to the differing availability of source data, which is outlined below, and to provide the most recent data whenever possible, each data table may have a different end year.

  • Form 5500 filings are due by the last day of the 7th month after the plan year ends. If a filing extension is requested, this due date is extended 2½ months.
  • PBGC Premium filings are due by the 15th day of the 10th full calendar month in the plan year.
  • PBGC operational data (financial and benefit payment) is generally available at the end of PBGC’s fiscal year.
