ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This final rule amends the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation’s regulations on Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans and Allocation of Assets in Single-Employer Plans to prescribe certain interest assumptions under the benefit payments regulation for plans with valuation dates in January 2020 and interest assumptions under the asset allocation regulation for plans with valuation dates in the first quarter of 2020. These interest assumptions are used for valuing benefits and paying certain benefits under terminating singleemployer plans covered by the pension insurance system administered by PBGC. DATES: Effective January 1, 2020.

(TTY users may call the Federal relay service toll free at 1–800–877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4400, ext. 3829.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PBGC’s regulations on Allocation of Assets in Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4044) and Benefits Payable in Terminated Single-Employer Plans (29 CFR part 4022) prescribe actuarial assumptions—including interest assumptions—for valuing and paying plan benefits under terminating singleemployer plans covered by title IV of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The interest assumptions in the regulations are also published on PBGC’s website (https://www.pbgc.gov). SUMMARY: Lump Sum Interest Assumption PBGC uses the interest assumptions in appendix B to part 4022 (‘‘Lump Sum Interest Rates for PBGC Payments’’) to determine whether a benefit is payable as a lump sum and to determine the amount to pay as a lump sum. Because some private-sector pension plans use these interest rates to determine lump PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 68043 sum amounts payable to plan participants (if the resulting lump sum is larger than the amount required under section 417(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and section 205(g)(3) of ERISA), these rates are also provided in appendix C to part 4022 (‘‘Lump Sum Interest Rates for Private-Sector Payments’’). This final rule updates appendices B and C of the benefit payments regulation to provide the rates for January 2020 measurement dates. The January 2020 lump sum interest assumptions will be 0.25 percent for the period during which a benefit is (or is assumed to be) in pay status and 4.00 percent during any years preceding the benefit’s placement in pay status. In comparison with the interest assumptions in effect for December 2019, these assumptions represent no change in the immediate rate and are otherwise unchanged. Valuation/Asset Allocation Interest Assumptions PBGC uses the interest assumptions in appendix B to part 4044 (‘‘Interest Rates Used to Value Benefits’’) to value benefits for allocation purposes under section 4044 of ERISA, and some private-sector pension plans use them to determine benefit liabilities reportable under section 4044 of ERISA and for other purposes. The first quarter 2020 interest assumptions will be 2.12 percent for the first 25 years following the valuation date and 2.26 percent thereafter. In comparison with the interest assumptions in effect for the fourth quarter of 2019, these interest assumptions represent no change in the select period (the period during which the select rate (the initial rate) applies), a decrease of 0.41 percent in the select rate, and a decrease of 0.27 percent in the ultimate rate (the final rate). Need for Immediate Guidance PBGC updates appendix B of the asset allocation regulation each quarter and appendices B and C of the benefit payments regulation each month. PBGC has determined that notice and public comment on this amendment are impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This finding is based on the need to issue new interest assumptions promptly so that they are available to value benefits and, for plans that rely on our publication of them each month or each quarter, to calculate lump sum benefit amounts. Because of the need to provide immediate guidance for the valuation and payment of benefits under plans with valuation dates during January 2020, PBGC finds that good cause exists E:\FR\FM\13DER1.SGM 13DER1
