Putting Together the Puzzle:  Exploring Medicare and Post-Retirement Medical Options

Thursday, August 27, 2020, 2-3 p.m. ET

Are you retired or approaching retirement? You may feel like choosing Medicare and post-retirement health insurance options is like opening a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle with no idea how to put together the puzzle or how it will come out. Join the Reverend Dr. Allison K. Seed for a one-hour webinar as she shares her experience navigating Medicare. The webinar will include

  • the parameters and limitations of Medicare Parts A and B;
  • suggested options for supplementing this coverage through a Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Supplemental Plan; and
  • highlights of the Medicare Supplemental Plan available through the Board of Pensions, including costs, coverages, and enrollment qualifications.

The Rev. Dr. Allison K. Seed joined the Board of Pensions as a Church Consultant in January 2011, responsible primarily for the Synod of the Northeast and Philadelphia. In 2019, Allison retired after 41 years in ordained service. She continues to serve the Board of Pensions as finance/benefits faculty for the CREDO program. Previously, she served 15 years as pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Independence, Missouri, as well as in other congregations in Missouri, Colorado, and South Carolina, and in campus ministry in South Carolina. Among her various assignments and appointments in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Allison served as Moderator of Heartland Presbytery, as well as two years as Chair of the General Assembly Council, now known as the Presbyterian Mission Agency Board. Allison holds a bachelor’s from Duke University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa in religion and French literature, a master of divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a doctor of ministry from Erskine Theological Seminary. Her passion continues to be helping ministers and church employees understand and make the most of the benefits available to them.
