Changes to Plan Rules Governing Benefits for Same-Gender Married Spouses
At its meeting on June 16, 2011, the Church Pension Fund (CPF) Board of Trustees voted to amend the rules governing retirement benefits for spouses of eligible participants in the Church Pension Fund Clergy Pension Plan (Clergy Plan), the Episcopal Church Lay Employees’ Retirement Plan (Lay DB Plan), and the Church Pension Fund Clergy Post-Retirement Medical Assistance Plan (Medicare Supplement Benefit) to provide parity of benefits for legally-married same-gender spouses. The changes are effective July 1, 2011.
