Pension forms for pastors changing appointments
Pastors who are moving to a new appointment should complete two pension documents for their new church treasurer. All pastors should complete the 2013 Pension Worksheet. Pastors electing to participate in the UMPIP should also complete the Contribution Agreement form for the UMPIP. These forms can be found either on the Online Data Collection System or the Treasurer’s Office Downloads Pensions page. Local church treasurers will need these forms to reconcile the pension billings.
