Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You would need an employee benefits law or pension law attorney and the best one to find one locally to represent you against the PBGC is at the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org or http://www.lexmundi.com (you need to copy and paste them to your browser, not just click on them due to technical issues with the site).
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page , as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
