Post-Retirement Health Subsidy

Eligible clergy beneficiaries of The Church Pension Fund Clergy Pension Plan (Clergy Pension Plan) receive a monthly subsidy to help cover the cost of purchasing a Group Medicare Advantage plan and/or group dental coverage. Retired clerics with at least 10 years of credited service under the Clergy Pension Plan—and their eligible spouses—are eligible for the subsidy.
