About Us

The Pensions and Benefits USA (P&B) team is committed to serving Nazarene districts, local churches, ministers (active and retired), and lay persons in the United States by providing retirement and insurance benefits, as well as tax and compensation resources. We administer the only denominationally-approved retirement plans for employees of Nazarene churches and institutions in the U.S. These plans provide significant tax advantages prior to and during retirement.

Mission

P&B serves the Church of the Nazarene by providing and educating ministers about uniquely designed benefit plans and related services, assisting constituents through significant life transitions, and conveying the importance of support for the P&B Fund.

Participants

Those covered by the benefit plans we administer are called participants and are those who currently serve or have served the Church of the Nazarene in a local, general church, or district church setting. U.S. educators are also considered participants. Specifically, participants include all U.S. ordained/licensed/commissioned ministers, evangelists, district superintendents, missionaries, chaplains, directors of Christian Education, directors of music, business managers, and church-employed lay people.

Staff

P&B is served by a small group of dedicated professionals, both clergy and lay. Together, they have more than 200 years of experience. They are dedicated to serving, educating, and informing our participants.
