Financial protection for short-term illness or injury

Ministers enrolled in Pastor's Participation or Minister's Choice are automatically enrolled in the Temporary Disability Plan. This plan offers important financial protection by providing short-term partial income replacement benefits for members who are sick or injured and unable to work. You also may offer the plan to staff working at least 20 hours per week.
