U.S. PENSION SEARCH GOES ON LINE : (RETIREMENT FUNDS).

Byline: P.J. Huffstutter Daily News Staff Writer

In an attempt to locate people who are entitled to retirement funds, the U.S. Department of Labor has posted on the Internet the names of 3,000 workers who have earned $10 million in unclaimed pension benefits.

The ``Pension Search Directory'' will help find people who have earned pensions in private defined benefit pension plans that were later terminated, said Labor Secretary Robert Reich.

The workers are owed pension benefits ranging from small ($10) to large ($66,000).

``A lot of these names are people who have moved and not left forwarding addresses, or people who have died and their survivors don't know about the benefits,'' said Meg Schryver, a spokeswoman for the department. ``In addition, some of these people worked for companies that went out of business, and the companies' records were kept in horrible condition.''

The directory lists the names of people being sought, the name and headquarters of the companies where they earned the pension, and the date the pension plan ended.

The directory may be viewed by accessing either the Labor Department's home page at http://www.dol.gov or at http://search.pbgc.gov.

Those who find themselves or know someone on the list should call the PBGC in Washington, D.C.

These are the Southern California workers entitled to benefits, and the companies for which they worked.
