Online Pension Transactions Through MyPBA

MyPBA is PBGC's secure online service that lets you handle certain common transactions with PBGC.

Who can use MyPBA?

  1. You can use MyPBA if PBGC is the trustee of your pension plan. And your plan's information is loaded into our database. This can be a complicated process. You won't be able to use MyPBA until several months after we take responsibility for your plan.
  2. You can use MyPBA even if you haven't started to get your monthly benefit from PBGC.

What do I need to sign up?

  1. Your valid Social Security Number
  2. Your current email address
  3. The PBGC case number of your pension plan (if you have multiple plans, you need only one).

When can I open an account?

  1. You can create your personal MyPBA Login as soon as we have acquired your plan's information and finished loading it into our database.
  2. It typically takes several months to set up the database for your account.
  3. If you try to open an account too soon, you will get a message that we were unable to find a match for you.
  4. You can find the status of your plan by using the Trusteed Plan Search if you attempt but are unable to create a login due to no match to the plan name or case number.

How do I set up an account?

  1. Go to
  2. Select the link on the right, "Create Your MyPBA Login", and follow three easy steps.
  3. You can view or print the step-by-step instructions for creating a new MyPBA Login.
