A black and white photo of graphs and charts.

The National Institute for Labor Relations Research has updated its page listing the Critical Status Notices sent out by the U.S. Department of Labor to “multiemployer pension plans,” which are mostly controlled by Labor Union Officials. This year and several past years of status notices go to NILRR,org’sPensions in Critical Status page.

US DOL information for those concerned about the condition of pensions listed below:

Critical, Endangered and WRERA Status Notices

Under federal pension law, if a multiemployer pension plan is determined to be in critical or endangered status, the plan must provide notice of this status to participants, beneficiaries, the bargaining parties, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and the Department of Labor. This requirement applies when a plan has funding or liquidity problems, or both, as described in the Federal law. If a plan is in critical status, adjustable benefits may be reduced and no lump sum distributions can be made. Pension plans in critical and endangered status are required to adopt a plan aimed at restoring the financial health of the pension plan.

Participants with questions regarding the notices should first contact your plan administrator. If you still have questions, contact the Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration electronically at www.askebsa.dol.gov or by calling toll-free 866-444-3272.

Notices may be emailed to the Department of Labor or mailed to the following address:
