PBGC Posts 2019 Single and Multiemployer Plan Premium Rates

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) announced that their webpage has been updated to provide the 2019 premium rates for single and multiemployer pension plans. The per-participant flat premium rate for plan years beginning in 2019 is $80 for single-employer plans (up from a 2018 rate of $74) and $29 for multiemployer plans (up from a 2018 rate of $28).

The increase in the single-employer rate was provided in The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013.  The increase in the multiemployer rate is the result of indexing.
