Newly hired/eligible for benefits

​When you begin employment, or become eligible for benefits, your employer will provide details about participation in the Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

​While employers must provide benefits coverage to installed ministers under Pastor's Participation, they may offer benefits to ministers (who are not installed) under Pastor's Participation or menu options, and a variety of coverage to employees based on their work hours through menu options.

If eligible, you will receive a welcome email and instructions from the Board to complete benefits enrollment for yourself and any eligible dependents through Benefits Connect, the Board's benefits website. You must enroll for benefits within 60 days of hire or eligibility, whichever is later. This initial enrollment is the only time you will be able to elect benefits before the next annual enrollment period, unless you experience a qualifying life event.
