Clergy: Don’t miss this important retirement savings plan benefit!

Did you know that as a clergy person, when you contribute a portion of your pay into the United Methodist Personal Investment Plan (UMPIP), a 403(b) retirement savings plan, you earn an additional matching contribution into the Clergy Retirement Security Program (CRSP)?

For example, when you contribute 1% or more of your annual pay, The Texas Annual Conference matches your contribution--up to 1% of your pay! Plus, by contributing a percentage of your salary, you will keep pace with any salary increases, boosting your savings over the long term.

It’s an easy change to make that can help you build a more secure financial future in retirement. Reach out to Patricia Goforth-Rakes, ,  today or download, complete and provide the UMPIP Contribution Election Form to your designated Church administrator and send to Wespath to begin this benefit!
