Beginning June 1, 2021, for a period of three months, (June, July, and August) the North Georgia Conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits will fund the church portion of HealthFlex health insurance premiums from the CBOPHB "Current Benefits Reserve" fund.
"We recognize that many of our churches are continuing to adapt to new patterns of giving," said Charles Darden, chair of the Conference Board of Pension. "The Board of Pension is blessed to have adequate reserves that we can use to cover the health insurance premiums that would otherwise be paid by the churches for a period of three months, beginning June 1"
This action was approved by the Conference Board of Pension on Wednesday, March 17.
June billing from the Conference Benefits Office will reflect this decision. Churches will still be billed for pension and the participants' portion of the health insurance.
This marks the second time that the CBOPHB has offered this holiday. They used reserves to cover the church portion of HealthFlex premiums for three months of 2020.
