Just published: The 2013 Benefits Administration Handbook for Church Treasurers, Clerks of Session, and Business Administrators
The Board of Pensions is pleased to announce publication of the 2013 edition of the Benefits Administration Handbook for Church Treasurers, Clerks of Session, and Business Administrators. This handbook can help you in your role as benefits liaison to the Board, providing practical information about benefits enrollment, dues, and taxes, among other topics, with an emphasis on administrative concerns. We hope you find this resource helpful and use it often. If you’d like a printed copy, please call 800-773-7752 (800-PRESPLAN) and speak with a member service representative to request one.
The Board also wants to take this opportunity to remind you that qualifying employers have until May 15 to apply for the small employer healthcare tax credit, which can potentially save your church, as an employing organization, thousands of dollars. If you are unsure if your organization qualifies, read the Tax Credit
Information & Resources page on pensions.org. Updated annually, this page describes the tax credit and links to a worksheet and several examples illustrating how the tax credit works.
Please mention or pass on the Benefits Administration Handbook and the tax credit links to any other individual in your organization who may find them helpful. Thank you!
