UMPIP Toolkit Available for Churches

A message from the General Board of Pensions:

We recognize that administering UMPIP is a responsibility that is shared between the local churches, conferences and the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits (General Board). To make this as easy as possible, we have developed a toolkit with educational materials that explain the contribution and remitting process. The toolkit is available on the General Board extranet at (username: extranet; password: gbop!123)—go to Submitting UMPIP Contributions for Clergy. It includes:
