Whether retirement is a distant dream, a next step, or a pleasant reality, The Church Pension Fund (CPF) is here to help you achieve financial security throughout your ministry and in retirement.
Reaching that goal requires both planning and partnership. We can help you plan. When we work actively together, CPF can be your informed and caring partner because we know the complex ins and outs of your benefits package, and we have your best interests at heart.
As this Guide makes clear, your participation in The Church Pension Fund Clergy Pension Plan (Clergy Pension Plan) offers you much more than a pension benefit. It also ensures that you will have access to financial resources to help you and your family navigate different life events.
During the 2015-2018 triennium, with input from more than 1,500 individuals, we undertook a comprehensive revision of the Clergy Pension Plan and related plans. The goal of our work was to adapt the plans to better suit the evolving needs of the Episcopal Church without reducing the overall value of your benefits. The feedback that we have received so far gives us confidence that we have accomplished our goal.
We hope you find this overview of the Clergy Pension Plan and related plans useful. As questions arise, please contact us or visit our offices. You can reach us at (866) 802-6333, Monday – Friday, 8:30AM – 8:00PM ET (excluding holidays) or at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help.
