PBGC Payment Dates

Direct Deposits

Direct deposit is a simple, fast, and secure way to receive payments, and it's free. These payments can be deposited directly into a bank account, savings and loan, credit union, or on a pre-paid debit card. Direct deposit payments are normally posted to accounts no later than the first business day of each month, but the actual date when you will receive your payment will depend on your financial institution. If the first of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, direct deposit payments will usually post before the first of the month. Direct deposit is available only if your account is with a U.S. financial institution. Apply for direct deposit.

Paper Checks

PBGC mails paper checks before the first of each month. However, PBGC cannot guarantee delivery on the first of the month. Normal mail delays, delays due to inclement weather or other uncontrollable events may result in checks being delivered later. If you have a bank account, we encourage you to choose direct deposit. It’s fast, free and a secure way to receive payments. For more information visit the Apply for direct deposit web page.

The table below shows payment dates through December 2019 when direct deposit payments will be delivered and when paper checks, dated the first of the month, will be mailed. Direct deposit payments are usually available sooner than paper checks.
