Pension Protection Act of 2006


The Act requires companies with underfunded pension plans to pay higher premiums to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC). The Act also extended the requirement of providing funding to the pension systems of companies that terminate their pension plans and raised the maximum amount employers are allowed to invest in their own plans.
