The Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) provides benefits and services to Presbyterian churches, agencies, and affiliated employers. The Board of Pensions is one of six agencies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Through the Benefits Plan of the PC(USA), they provide a broad range of benefits and services to PC(USA) churches, agencies, and mid councils, as well as affiliated employers — including educational institutions, camps and conference centers, retirement and senior housing communities, and human services organizations.
The work they do today is rooted in the Fund for Pious Uses. Presbyterians established the Fund in 1717 to care for pioneering preachers and their families, then steadily expanded care for church workers through the years. Today, the Board of Pensions serves approximately 65,000 individuals, including ministers, employees, retirees, and family members, through the Benefits Plan of the PC(USA). As a nonprofit defined by faith, they are guided by the belief that we live in caring community with one another. They are committed to mutual care and wholeness. When employers partner with them to provide benefits, their ministers and employees receive access to support in key areas of well-being: spiritual, health, financial, and vocational.
At the end of 2020, The Board of Pensions reported total assets of over $12 billion. The annual claim expense for healthcare in the most recent year exceeded $210 million.
Reporting to the Executive Vice President and Chief Benefits Officer, the Vice President of Health & Well-Being has overall responsibility for the design and management of plans and programs that impact the health and well-being of members, retirees and their families, and reflect the underlying Theology of Benefits and the Board’s culture of wholeness. These plans include Medical, Retiree Medical, Prescription Drug, EAP, Dental, Vision, and Well-being.
