E-Filing Portal

E-Filing Portal Now Available

On September 17, 2015, PBGC published a final rule amending PBGC's multiemployer regulations to require electronic filing of certain multiemployer notices, starting January 1, 2016. Specifically, the regulation requires that the following notices and applications be filed electronically:

  • Notices of Termination
  • Notices of Insolvency
  • Notices of Insolvency Benefit Level
  • Applications for Financial Assistance

We have created an e-filing portal to use for these purposes. In addition, although not required, the new e-filing portal allows for the electronic submission of the following notices:

  • Notices of critical, endangered, and seriously endangered status
  • Annual funding notices

The new e-filing portal is a simple system that allows you to create a secure user account, select the type of filing or application you are using, input your data, attach documents, and print a hard copy of the filing for your records.  For recurring filings (e.g., applications for financial assistance), it also allows you to pre-populate a filing with data submitted on a prior filing for the same plan.

If you have any questions, please send an email to multiemployerprogram@pbgc.gov. Click here to access a user manual with step-by-step instructions on how to create and manage your e-Filing Portal account.
