Critical, Critical and Declining, Endangered and WRERA Status Notices

Under Federal pension law, if a multiemployer pension plan is determined to be in critical status (a plan in critical and declining status is considered to be a plan in critical status) 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 in excess of $5,000 can be made. If a critical status plan is also critical and declining, the plan sponsor may file an application with the Secretary of the Treasury requesting a temporary or permanent reduction of benefits to keep the plan from running out of money.  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 or by calling toll-free 866-444-3272.

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

U.S. Department of Labor
EBSA Public Disclosure Room, N-1515
200 Constitution Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20210
