General Conference 2012 approved several changes related to clergy benefit plans such as the Ministerial Pension Plan (MPP), Clergy Retirement Security Program (CRSP) and the Comprehensive Protection Plan (CPP). This summary lists the changes as well as the effective dates for each. The General Board of Pension and Health Benefits (GBOPHB) has also published this brochure describing the plans’ amendments. The October 2012 issue of the GBOPHB Hark! newsletter offers ways to both minimize the impact of these changes and maximize your benefits. Questions can be directed to the NC Conference Benefits Team in the Treasurer’s Office (1-800-849-4433) or to the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits (1-800-851-2201).
