Appointed Clergy and Local Church Paid Staff in the Mississippi Conference
Message from David Stotts, Mississippi Conference Treasurer and Benefits Officer
I am pleased to announce that we have teamed up with AFLAC to offer every appointed clergy and local church paid staff, in the Mississippi Conference, the same policies for the same rates as is offered to the district superintendents and employees of the annual conference office. We have found these policies to be very beneficial and cost effective. While the premiums will not be eligible for salary reduction due to restrictions of the Affordable Care Act, they can be drafted from personal accounts. These plans are available to on an individual basis with no participation requirements in your paid church staff.
Following is information shared by Josh Cline of the AFLAC office that serves the Mississippi Annual Conference employees.
