Annual Review

​The Annual Review looks back at the work of the Board of Pensions in the previous year. The Financial Report, released with it, presents the annual financial statements.

Coronavirus uncertainty lingered throughout 2021. Board of Pensions operations remained remote. Still, our staff exceeded the goals we had set for the year. The agency maintained strong, stable support for the changing Church and recorded a year of historic financial strength. The 2021 Annual Review reflects our work to support the denomination — serving the active and retired members of the Benefits Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and their families.

As the pace of change quickened, the agency identified six streams of change that will shape the next generation of our service. And we began preparing to adapt. Plans to add a care navigation feature to the Medical Plan were accelerated. We moved to broaden the reach of our Assistance Program and expand support for ministers. And our work toward diversity, equity, and inclusion continued to grow.
