Why aren't PBGC retirement checks tax free, since our company, which is now bankrupt, paid PBGC insurance premiums and insurance claims aren't taxed?

Hello Mike,

Not all insurance proceeds are tax-free. Life insurance and most medical insurance benefits are usually tax-free, but even life insurance benefits are occasionally taxable.

Good luck!
