You may have worked for companies with pension programs. If you worked there for three years or
more, you should contact these companies asking their benefits department if they are holding funds
for you. Many companies, however, may have a 5 year or more minimum service to become vested with a
right to benefits.
If a company can’t be found or has gone out of business, you can check with the Pension Benefits
Guaranty Corporation, at 202-326-4000. Their address is PBGC, 1200 K Street N.W. #240, Washington,
DC 20005-4026. Their web site is www.pbgc.gov .
