PBGC protects pensions. We also want to protect you!
Scams are at an all-time high during these tough economic times, and retirees are among scammers' favorite targets.
We have just learned that an individual attempted to obtain a 25% "finder's fee" for helping a retired United Airlines flight attendant get her PBGC pension benefit. He, as well as others, may be doing this with other UAL flight attendants.
Let's be clear: You do not need anyone's assistance to obtain your benefit from PBGC. People or firms who offer to help you for a finder's fee are not associated with PBGC. If you have questions, contact us by email or call our Customer Contact Center at 1-800-400-7242.
