On January 1, 2018, the automatic enrollment feature of the United Methodist Personal Investment Plan (UMPIP) took effect. Some participants may have received a communication directly from Wespath Benefits and Investments notifying them that their personal contribution had been changed to an amount higher than they intended. Please disregard this communication if you made a different election in the NC Conference’s Online Data Collection System. The Wespath communication was sent prior to their receipt of data from the NC Conference system. All elections made in the Online Data Collection System will stand as your 2018 contribution on record.
