1 For those enrolled in The Church Pension Fund Clergy Pension Plan and The Episcopal Church Lay Employees’ Retirement Plan. Those participating in multiple plans, those receiving long-term disability benefits, and those who have served or currently serve in the military will not have access to the pension calculator because of the complexity of their plans.
When you retire, you may serve in the Episcopal Church and continue to receive pension benefits as long as:
You do not work for pay in the church or institution from which you have retired, unless requested by your bishop and approved by The Church Pension Fund.
Your total compensation from Episcopal Church-related income does not exceed $44,200 as of January 1, 2024 (up from $42,850 in 2023).
Work outside the church does not impact your benefits from the Clergy Pension Plan, unless requested by your bishop and approved by The Church Pension Fund.
For The Church Pension Fund to consider an exception to these requirements, the bishop in the diocese where you are called must:
Write to The Church Pension Fund, explaining why your service in that position contributes to the mission strategy of the congregation or diocese.
