ABOUT BENEFITS

Benefits to benefit you and the EPC.

EPC Benefit Resources, Inc. (BRI) is operated by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and is solely dedicated to support pastors and staff of EPC churches throughout the country. Our programs include insured health benefits covering medical, prescription drug, dental, and vision care needs as well as disability and life insurance coverages. These benefit programs as well as our wellness initiatives are available to all full-time church staffs. We also offer a Defined Contribution Retirement Plan designed specifically for employees of non-profit church organizations that includes retirement planning advisory services.

Whether you are presently covered by the EPC benefits or a potential participant, these resources are here to help you both evaluate EPC’s benefits programs and to answer your questions.

For details about each of the BRI plans, see the following pages (which also are available from the Resources > Benefits menu above):
