Reminders about Clergy Compensation


calculatorREMINDERS: If you are making a change in your 2017 Health Benefits election (add/dropping spouse, children, change from either Basic to Basic Plus) OR Flexible Spending Arrangements for Medical or Dependent Care, YOU MUST COMPLETE A NEW FORM.  IF you are not making a change in Health Benefits, DO NOTHING- you are good to go.  This is the link for Health Insurance: You must re-enroll in the FSA even if you participated in 2016!  Here is the form for FSA: Simply making a change on your Clergy Compensation Form is only STEP 1.  These forms are Step 2.  DEADLINE:  December 1, 2016

If you elected to make CHANGES to  your United Methodist Personal Investment Plan contributions for your 2017 pension over 2016, you need to complete the following form and remit to Wespath (address on form).   If you are not making any changes in your personal contributions,  you do NOTHING for 2017.  Just like Health Benefits, simply making a change on your Clergy Compensation Form is only STEP 1.  The form is Step 2.  DEADLINE:  December 1, 2016 For more information, please contact Dale Bryant at the Conference Treasury Office, 704-714-2332 or 800-562-7929,
