MEDICAL BENEVOLENCE FUND
There are four categories of individuals eligible to receive dispersements from the EPC’s Medical Benevolence Fund:
1. EPC ministers who are without call.
2. EPC ministers who are on disability.
3. Pastors of EPC mission churches that do not have a mother church.
4. Retired EPC ministers.
It is the intention that this Fund shall never pay more than one-half of the actual amount of the Medical Plan premium paid on behalf of each individual beneficiary. The Benevolence Committee will receive applications on a quarterly basis in January, April, July, and October.
In the event that the income from this fund is not sufficient to pay one-half of the need of the individual applicants in any year, then the Benevolence Committee shall order its distributions to be made pro-rata based upon the amount of income available from the Fund.
