PBGC Publishes Updated Data Book

Issued by: PBGC [Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation]

Date: Oct. 2, 2000

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) today issued the latest edition of its annual statistical reference book, which provides detailed statistics for PBGCs insurance programs for both single-employer and multiemployer plans.

The book, Pension Insurance Data Book 1999, tracks the experience of PBGCs two separate insurance programs and the defined benefit pension plans they protect. Defined benefit plans are the traditional pension plans that promise workers a specific monthly benefit at retirement.
The new edition also includes an article that analyzes the statutory limits of PBGCs guarantee and demonstrates that, in the plans reviewed, most participants received all of their benefits.

For each of PBGCs insurance programs, the book includes data tables on the people receiving or eligible to receive benefits from PBGC and the agencys benefit payments, the financial condition of the program, the people and plans protected by the program, and the overall funding level of the pension plans covered by the program.

The data book is available on PBGCs home page at www.pbgc.gov. Single copies of the publication may be obtained by writing to: PBGC Data Book, Suite 240, 1200 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20005-4026. Requests also may be submitted by FAX to (202) 326-4042.

PBGC is a federal corporation created by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 to guarantee payment of basic pension benefits earned by workers. Its two insurance programs cover about 43 million American workers and retirees participating in nearly 40,000 private-sector defined benefit pension plans. The agency receives no funds from general tax revenues. Operations are financed largely by insurance premiums paid by companies that sponsor pension plans and investment returns.
