BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

PBGC takes over pension plan sponsored by Lower Bucks Hospital


WASHINGTON—The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. has taken over and terminated an underfunded pension plan sponsored by Lower Bucks Hospital in Bristol, Pa.

The plan has $77 million in liabilities and $40.5 million in assets. The PBGC will be responsible for nearly all of the more than $36.5 million in promised but unfunded benefits to the plan's 1,636 participants.

The PBGC took action after determining that the hospital could not afford to continue the plan.

Lower Bucks filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2010 and emerged from bankruptcy this year.
