So it appears they are insured, but I think I'll get on the payroll anyway - I hope then it will be locked in.

Nope. If the plan gets turned over to the PBGC after you start collecting benefits, you'll still be subject to the PBGC benefit limits.

Am I right in assuming that a pension is exempt from SS tax?

Yes.
