Beginning April 1, for a period of three months, the North Georgia Conference Board of Pension will fund the church portion of HealthFlex health insurance premiums from the CBOP "Current Benefits Reserve" fund.
"These are certainly unprecedented times," said Charles Darden, chair of the Conference Board of Pension. "It is for times like these that we have reserves. The Board of Pension will cover the health insurance premiums that would otherwise be paid by the churches for a period of three months, beginning April 1."
This action was approved by the Conference Board of Pension on Friday, March 20.
April billing from the Conference Benefits Office will reflect this decision. Waiving this expense for churches will not impact the benefits received by any participants.
