amend PBGC’s regulation on Benefits
Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans. That regulation sets forth rules on PBGC’s guarantee of pension plan benefits, including rules on the phasein of the guarantee. The amendments implement section 403 of the Pension Protection Act of 2006, which provides that the phase-in period for the guarantee of benefits that are contingent upon the occurrence of an ‘‘unpredictable contingent event,’’ such as a plant shutdown, starts no earlier than the date of the shutdown or other unpredictable contingent event.
