On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed into law the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act (“ARPA”) which contains the Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act of 2021 (“EPPRA”).
EPPRA provides sweeping and broad-based relief to multiemployer pension plans like the GCC/IBT National Pension Fund that face insolvency. Under EPPRA, eligible pension plans can apply for financial assistance from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation ("PBGC") which is intended to be sufficient for qualifying pension plans to pay all benefits for 30 years.
