About PBGC

PBGC Blog: Retirement Matters

If you receive a retirement benefit from PBGC, all or some of the money may be taxable. Every year, we report this amount to the IRS and send you an IRS Form 1099-R that states the amount we paid you the previous year. 

We'll mail your Form 1099-R for 2013 to your address of record by Friday, January 31, 2014. If you don't receive your form soon after the mailing date, we offer the following options:

  1. Use our online service, MyPBA, to view and print a copy of your 1099-R tax form for the most recent tax year.

OR

  1. Call PBGC's Customer Contact Center at 1-800-400-7242 to request a form by mail.

Before you call, please have your Social Security number, plan name and case number ready for the customer service representative.

For more information, see IRS Form 1099-R Frequently Asked Questions.
