US Pension Agency's Deficit Swells To $23.3 Billion

This is an unbelievable article. They have plundered the future. These are all the 'blue ribbon" retirements people thought were secure for their futures and their children. It did not even last until the ones who worked for it got their benefits, much less security for future generations. These are the under writers and reinsurers, the ones we never heard about until a few years ago as corporate corruption has been revealed. The money priests have been manipulating the revenue streams in their own interest (not money), now the people see it is a huge lie. We will soon find out that we have been "mortgaged" to foreign interests and a corporate government, NOT constitutional, NOT a Republic, NO state rights.... IF WE ALLOW IT ...... Time for the TRUTH to fully come out, we face it and "alter amend or abolish" these outlaw schemes, re establishing our security.

The robots have cooked the books so much that now it is exponentially expanding to ludicrous, unbelievable and amazing scope. DOUBLE in one year... this is NOT SUSTAINABLE.... Two years ago the first articles came out about Pension Guaranty Corp. being in trouble, exposed in the courts with cooked books, the corporate structure falling, the under-lie-ing layer exposed in the courts. We see now it is not based in law but in lies and fabricated records, now abrogated contracts they are severing with the people who worked and trusted the companies they gave their lives for. Now plundered.

Time to open all the books, see who has been siphoning all the revenue for generations. Time to REALLY LOOK at what "corporate America" is at this time. It is now exposed the people's interest is a pot of gold that contains monopoly money, paper notes not backed by anything, not real, worth less every day right now plummeting. We have to restore our Republic. WE HAVE TO STOP THE LIES IN THE COURTROOMS NOW.... that is how they have accomplished their schemes and enforce it. It is FRAUD.

US Pension Agency's Deficit Swells To $23.3 Billion

US Pension Agency's Deficit
Swells To $23.3 Billion
By Susan Cornwell

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The deficit at the federal agency that rescues failed U.S. corporate pensions more than doubled to $23.3 billion in fiscal year 2004, officials said on Monday, with analysts largely blaming bankrupt airlines.

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. insures the traditional "defined benefit" pensions of about 44 million workers. It started the year with a then-record deficit of $11.2 billion in its program for pension plans sponsored by a single employer.

The agency was hit by a $14.7 billion loss from "completed and probable" pension plan terminations during the year ending Sept. 30, which was only partially offset by premium and investment income.

While the agency did not name the companies whose pension plans had caused the flood of red ink, the PBGC said its largest exposure came from the transportation, communications and utilities sector.

Analysts said looming liabilities from struggling airlines clearly had hurt the PBGC balance sheet.

Expected pension plan terminations at bankrupt carriers United Airlines and US Airways must have figured in the loss because both companies plan to scrap employee plans to save money, said Douglas Elliott, president of the Center on Federal Financial Institutions, a think tank in Washington.

"The legal threshold for including the amount is only that they are 'probable' terminations," Elliott said. "So United has got to be in there as well as US Air."

"These guys are in trouble," he said of the PBGC.

The PBGC has said in court that termination of pension plans at United, a unit of UAL Corp., would add $6.4 billion to its liabilities. The agency would have to pick up $2.1 billion in liabilities at US Airways' if that airline scraps its three remaining defined benefit plans.


The chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, Rep. John Boehner, said airlines' woes were aggravating the trend in underfunded pension plans. The PBGC slipped into a deficit in 2002 after having to rescue failed pension plans in the steel industry.

While the agency is funded by corporate premiums, its problems are "putting taxpayers' interests in real jeopardy," said Boehner, a Republican from Ohio.

He vowed to move forward with comprehensive legislation to reform and strengthen traditional "defined benefit" pensions, which have a fixed payout at retirement.

In addition to losses booked for fiscal 2004, the PBGC calculated its "reasonably possible" exposure, which is an estimate of the amount of unfunded benefits in pension plans sponsored by companies at greater risk of default. This was estimated at $96 billion, up from $82 billion a year earlier.

Total underfunding of pensions at U.S. companies whose single-employer pension plans are insured by the PBGC jumped in fiscal 2004 to $450 billion -- up from $350 billion a year earlier.

The PBGC's separate insurance program for multi-employer pensions had a deficit of $236 million in fiscal 2004 -- smaller than the deficit of $261 million a year earlier.
