Employer toolkits offer ready-to-use benefits communications

January 09, 2020

Looking for instructions on how to process a Retirement Savings Plan contribution? Need help reminding employees how to earn Call to Health points? Employer toolkits can help you administer and communicate to employees about benefits.

Whether benefits administration is your full-time job, or only a small part of it, you may become overwhelmed by all the benefits information out there. That’s why, throughout the year, the Board of Pensions and our business partners provide employers and employees with communications to explain important benefits features and how to make the most of these benefits. We also provide toolkits for employers with additional materials you can display and/or distribute to help employees make informed decisions and use their benefits wisely.

Here’s how employer toolkits can help.

The Board of Pensions has developed a collection of employer toolkits to help you engage with and educate employees about benefits offered through the Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The following toolkits are available:

  • Call to Health
  • Church employers
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Enrollment and new hires
  • Flexible spending accounts
  • High deductible health plan and health savings account
  • Retirement Savings Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

Using the toolkits

The toolkits provide materials to display and/or distribute to help employees better understand — and get the most from — their benefits. You can

  • use the monthly emails, posters, or letters to remind employees about various benefits features;
  • quickly link to information about administering and processing benefits; and
  • have all the information you need at your fingertips when enrolling new employees.

There are two ways to use the toolkits to reinforce communications employees receive from the Board of Pensions and our business partners throughout the year:

  • Select any item in the toolkits to print, post, or distribute as needed; or
  • for the toolkits that contain communications roadmaps, follow the calendar of recommended monthly topics and how to engage employees each month.

As you begin planning your benefits communications for the year, be sure to access these toolkits for ideas and templates to help share information with your employees so they can get the most from their coverage.
