1 To be eligible to retire prior to July 1, 2013, a cleric must have met the requirements of a 55/30, 60/5, 65/5 or disability retirement under The Church Pension Fund Clergy Pension Plan on or prior to June 30, 2013.

2 The Church Pension Fund (CPF) plans to continue to provide the Medicare Supplement Health Plan Subsidy. However, CPF must maintain sufficient liquidity and assets to pay its pension and other benefit plan obligations. Given uncertain financial markets and their impact on assets, CPF has reserved the right, in its discretion, to change or discontinue providing a Medicare Supplement Health Plan Subsidy.
