MULTIEMPLOYER PENSION PLANS [22 January 2013]
Report to Congress Required by the Pension Protection Act of 2006
[full-text, 84 pages]
More than 10 million Americans working in a wide range of industries depend on about 1,500 private-sector multiemployer defined benefit plans to secure their retirement income. Multiemployer plans provide portability for workers as they move to different employers or job sites within the same industry.
This study focuses on multiemployer defined benefit pension plans. There were also nearly 1,300 multiemployer defined contribution pension plans that held about $105 billion in assets in 2010 on behalf of approximately 4 million participants

Multiemployer Plan News and Info
On January 29, 2013, the federal ERISA agencies sent to Congress several reports on multiemployer pension plans insured by PBGC. They provide information on the financial health of multiemployer plans and the PBGC’s multiemployer insurance program, but make no recommendations. They should be helpful as Congress considers potential changes to multiemployer pension laws and to PBGC’s multiemployer insurance program.
