Did You Know?

  • For the year ending March 31, 2016 CPG received $88 million in pension assessments1 and paid out nearly $366 million in benefits.2
  • CPF uses sophisticated financial modeling to stress test its financial position under various scenarios (e.g., prolonged periods of stock market decline). This modeling helps us determine what our asset level must be for us to have confidence that we will be able to meet our benefits obligations well into the future. The models consistently tell us that the Clergy Pension Plan has an appropriate level of assets to weather periods of volatility. We believe the Clergy Pension Plan is appropriately funded, but not overfunded. 

Includes clergy and lay employees; April 1, 2015 – March 31, 2016.

Includes pension and other benefits (medical supplement subsidy and life insurance) paid for clergy and their beneficiaries and for lay employees; April 1, 2015 – March 31, 2016.
