What Do I Need to Do?
Throughout the year, we will post "action items" for participants who may be impacted by some of the changes. Check back to view the list during the year.
- NEW! The PlanAhead online calculator has been updated to include the new Clergy Pension Plan revisions, expected to become effective January 1, 2018. The revised calculator also allows bi-vocational clergy to include salary and benefits they may earn through a secular position as well as through their position in the Episcopal Church.
If you are planning to retire in 2017 or 2018, please contact CPG to schedule a financial discussion.
Monday – Friday
8:30AM – 8:00PM ET
Please note that in order to receive retirement benefits under the new Clergy Pension Plan, you must earn Credited Service in 2018, and retire after January 1, 2018 with a vested benefit. In addition, any assessments due with respect to this Credited Service must be paid in full prior to your retirement. If you retire on or before January 1, 2018 with a vested benefit, you will receive retirement benefits under the existing Clergy Pension Plan.
It's a good time to review the beneficiaries you have listed for your preretirement survivor benefits and life insurance benefits. You can view them at MyCPG Accounts. Sign in using your CPG Account username and password.
