PBGC to Publish Final Rules on Premium Rates

March 20, 2008 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) announced it will publish a final rule to amend PBGC's regulations on Premium Rates and Payment of Premiums in the Federal Register on March 21.

The amendments implement provisions of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 that changed the variable-rate premium for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2008, and make other changes to the regulations, the announcement said.

The PBGC previously published final rules regarding premium rates and payments in the December 17, 2007 Federal Register (See PBGC Publishes Final Rules on Premium Rates and Payments ).

In addition, the related premium instructions for 2008 final e-filings (now called Comprehensive Filings) have been updated to incorporate this final rule and will be posted to PBGC’s Web site.
