Benefits to meet your needs 

Select plans and options to build a comprehensive benefits package for your employees.


  • All three coverage options — a preferred provider organization (PPO), an exclusive provider organization (EPO), and a qualified high deductible health plan (HDHP) — feature generous preventive care and prescription drug benefits, a telemedicine option, and Call to Health, our online well-being program.


  • This benefit provides coverage for a wide range of basic and major services and orthodontic treatment, saving members money on dental care and helping to support overall health and well-being. 

Vision eyewear coverage

  • Members can save hundreds of dollars every year on the cost of eyeglasses or contacts and more through this low-cost benefit. 

Flexible spending accounts

  • Participants can save on eligible healthcare and dependent care expenses by setting aside pretax dollars in a flexible spending account. Healthcare FSAs can be used to pay for eligible healthcare expenses, such as deductibles, copays, and prescription drugs. Dependent care FSAs can be used to pay for eligible child and elder care expenses.

Pension Plan

  • The Pension Plan is a means for income security in retirement. Participants receive guaranteed monthly income throughout retirement, funded through employer dues and investment earnings. 

Death and Disability Plan 

  • This plan offers peace of mind and income security through death and disability benefits, as well as supplemental coverage.

Group term life coverage

  • This provides employees not offered the Death and Disability Plan with the security that comes from knowing their loved ones will have coverage. This low-cost group term life coverage is not age-rated, and no evidence of insurability is required. 

Retirement Savings Plan

  • The Retirement Savings Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), a 403(b)(9) plan, can help participants build savings and achieve long-term retirement goals. When you offer this plan to your employees, you provide them with a savings tool — with both tax-deferred and Roth after-tax contribution features — that can help them live with greater financial security in retirement.
