Aetna Life Essentials

Thanks to contributions by their churches to the P&B Fund, most Nazarene ministers receive basic life insurance coverage at no cost to them. They, along with other church-employed laypersons, may also purchase additional life insurance. Those who hold such coverage are eligible for a variety of added value services from Aetna Insurance, such as assistance with funeral planning, including price comparisons for vendors in your area.
