This is your opportunity to let Jim, Your Lay Delegate, know how you would like him to vote in the Virtual General Conference next month. The vote is regarding the peoposed plans to the Pension Plan for MCC, which are as folllows:
Since the inception of the MCC Pension Plan in 1984, the assessment for each MCC chartered Congregation has not changed from its current level of $0.75 per member, per month, paid quarterly. Had the Pension assessment kept pace with inflation over the past 33 years, the current assessment would be $1.72.
That each MCC affiliated congregation in the United States provide investment contributions to the MCC Pension Plan according to the following schedule:
2018 -- $1.00, per member, per month
2019 -- $1.25, per member, per month
2020 -- $1.50, per member, per month
2021 -- $1.75, per member, per month
Thereafter, beginning in 2025, the rate of investment will be adjusted every 5 years, up or down,based on inflation or deflation of the US Dollar.
