Greetings, Mhm6487, and welcome. You asked:

<<Is anyone out there familiar with the Pension Benefit Guranty Trust which insures corporate defined benefit pension plans? Specifically, what percentage of an individual's pension do they guarantee? Is there a dollar limit on the monthly pension benefits that they pay in the event of a corporate plan failure?>>

The Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation, a quasi-governmental agency, has an excellent set of FAQ at that can pretty much answer your questions. If your pension plan is taken over, the PBGC will cover a normal retirement pension of up to $3221.59 a month for someone at age 65 or $2545.06 at age 62.
