The Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is designed to care for and provide benefit protection for the community of plan members. The Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), as the plan administrator, embodies the Church’s sense of community in caring for church workers. The Board administers medical, dental, death, and disability benefits coverage; a defined benefit pension plan; and a defined contribution retirement savings plan. Each employer chooses the benefits available to its employees.
In addition, the Assistance Program helps church workers whose needs exceed the bounds of the Benefits Plan, personal resources, and other means. It also provides grant opportunities and programs to build the practical skills needed to minister in today’s world.
