Sears Holdings Pension Plan 1

PBGC Begins Managing Benefits for Sears Holdings employees

If you are not currently receiving benefits, there is nothing for you to do at this time. 

If you are currently receiving benefits:

  • You will need to verify your personal information within 30 days of the date of the PBGC trusteeship letter you received. You can verify your information online via a MyPBA account or by returning the Payee Information Form you received with your Trusteeship Letter. 
  • If you do not complete the verification questions through MyPBA or send the completed Payee Information Form within 30 days of your trusteeship letter, your benefit payments may be suspended.  We will notify you in writing prior to suspending your benefits. 
  • You should now contact PBGC’s Customer Contact Center for any customer service needs. 

More information for Sears Participants is available in our Sears Questions and Answers webpage.
