In June, pension plan participants received a letter from the NC Conference Treasurer’s Office regarding an adjustment affecting deposits made to their United Methodist Personal Investment Plan (UMPIP) accounts. It was expected that these adjustments would be reflected on the second quarter statement as of June 30, 2018. However, because Wespath Benefits and Investments and the NC Conference are dedicated to the accuracy and thoroughness of all transactions affecting our participants’ retirement benefits we have had to delay the publication of the adjustments until the third quarter statement. We apologize for the delay and remain committed to ensuring the wholeness of participants’ pension account balances as achieved through the adjustment transaction to be reported on the September 30, 2018 statement. Please address any questions or concerns to a member of the NC Conference Benefits Team.
