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 through Pastor's Participation, they may offer benefits to ministers (who are not installed) under Pastor's Participation, Minister’s Choice, or through the variety of plans and benefits available to employees based on their scheduled work hours.

If eligible, you will receive a welcome email and instructions from the Board to complete benefits enrollment for yourself and any eligible family members through Benefits Connect, the Board's benefits website. You must enroll for benefits within 30 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, unless you experience a qualifying life event.
