Uncle Sam wants you. Just in case you are owed a pension.
The U.S. government is trying to locate 37,640 people who are owed pension benefits. Are you or a relative or friend on the list? You can check here.
The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation is the federal agency that backs the payment of basic pension benefits for more than 44 million American workers.
When a company's pension plan is transferred to the agency, sometimes the company can't locate everyone in the plan.
There are 715 missing beneficiaries from North Carolina companies - from Alamac Knit Fabrics to Collins & Aikman to Cone Mills to White of Mebane.
Note that applies only to "defined benefit" plans - the traditional pension which promises to pay a specific monthly amount to workers when they retire. This doesn't include 401-K or profit-sharing plans.
