The annual contributions payments to the Ministers’ Transition Fund (MTF) are due to the Treasurer’s Office no later than Jan. 31, 2010. According to the plan document (2008 Journal, page 435), payments received after Jan. 31 will be returned to the minister. This lack of payment may result in either a delay of when the MTF member may begin to receive dividends or the member may not receive the 2009 dividend, depending on how long the member has been enrolled in the Fund. For more details about the benefits of this Fund and to obtain an enrollment application, visit the Pensions Page on the Treasurer’s Office Web site https://nccumc.org/treasurer/pensions/ or contact JoAnna Cafferty (1-800-849-4433 ext. 225).
