Open Enrollment for Actively Appointed Clergy (Not Retired Supply) begins on October 30th and runs through November 14th. There are a few minor changes which will be outlined in the open enrollment packets you will receive from WesPath.

That is about to change!
In November, churches with fewer than 20 employees will receive a Small-Employer Exemption certificate form. This form should be completed and returned to the Benefits Office to begin the process with the Center for Medicare Services (CMS). This is not a quick process and could easily take several months to complete. Learn more…
