PBGC Multiemployer Guarantee Calculator
Calculate how much your pension would be
if your multiemployer pension plan were to run out of money
When a multiemployer pension plan runs out of money to pay promised pensions, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), a federal government agency, provides loans to the plan to allow it to continue to pay benefits at reduced amounts. These reduced amounts are extremely low, and the Pension Rights Center is working with other groups to persuade Congress to increase them.
For more information on multiemployer pension plan funding, read our fact sheet.
Use the calculator below to determine how much your pension would be if your plan were to run out of money and the PBGC had to step in.
Please enter only numbers into the calculator. Do not use dollar signs or commas.
