Life Changes

It is important to notify the Church Pension Group as soon as possible of any changes related to your beneficiaries.


Your spouse may be eligible to receive a distribution of your account upon your death. Log into Fidelity NetBenefits to update your beneficiary designation.


If your final divorce decree requires you to assign a portion of your pension benefit to your former spouse, there are both tax and legal reasons for creating a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). Discuss this with your lawyer.

  • A QDRO gives your former spouse the right to receive all or a portion of your pension benefits.
  • A QDRO has tax and legal benefits - discuss this with your lawyer.
  • You should have your QDRO approved by Fidelity Investments.
  • Refer to the QDRO Procedures and Model - RSVP & Lay DC Plan.
  • We cannot provide information about your pension benefits to a third party unless you execute a Consent Form.
  • Call the Benefit Services Center at (877) 208-0092 with any questions.
