PBGC RIN: 1212-AB18 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: Phase-In of Guarantee of Unpredictable Contingent Event Benefits; Pension Protection Act of 2006 
Abstract: This is a proposed rule to amend PBGC's regulation on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4022). That regulation sets forth rules on PBGC's guarantee of pension plan benefits, including rules on the phase-in of the guarantee. The amendments would implement section 403 of the Pension Protection Act of 2006, which provides that the phase-in period for the guarantee of a benefit payable solely by reason of an "unpredictable contingent event," such as a plant shutdown, starts no earlier than the date of the shutdown or other unpredictable contingent event.
