The maximum benefit that the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. will guarantee to participants who retire at age 65 and are in plans that the agency takes over next year will be $55,840.92, up from $54,000 this year, the PBGC announced Wednesday.
Changes in the maximum benefit guarantee, which will increase 3.4 percent next year, are linked to wage inflation.
In fiscal 2011, the PBGC paid nearly $5.5 billion to participants in plans taken over by the agency.Earlier this month, the PBGC reported a record $26.1 billion deficit—up from $23 billion in fiscal 2010—in its insurance programs.
The programs are funded by premiums paid by employers with defined benefit plans and by investment income earned on assets in failed plans that the agency has taken over.
