Benefits Information for the Local Church

Given the current landscape, it is important that local churches are well aware of the variety of important topics that can affect them.  Whether it’s Health Care Reform, Health Benefits, Pension Benefits or just understanding your Benefits Statement, this page is designed to be an important resource for the local church.  If you have any questions that are not addressed below, please do not hesitate to contact the Benefits Staff. 


Health Care Reform

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a topic that we are taking very seriously as it applies to the Local Church.  While some of the employer reporting and employer mandates that came along with the Affordable Care Act have been delayed, there are still several items that we are watching closely as it will have an important effect on the local church. The information listed below will be updated accordingly as we move forward into the coming years.
