Q. I think I may be due a pension from a company that went bankrupt years ago. How can I try to find out?

A. Try the "Missing Participants Search" feature at www.pbgc.gov, the website of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. Or call the federal agency at 1-800-400-7242. Bankrupt companies often failed to fully fund their pension plans. In that case, the PBGC might pay the benefits — though perhaps at a reduced level.
