Clergy looking towards retirement within a couple years, or several years into the future, and who want to be well informed about retirement planning are invited to a Pre-Retirement Workshop on Monday, October 12, 1-4 p.m. at Portage UMC. You will learn how much to put in your UM Personal Investment Plan, what death benefit is available after retirement, how to project when you can retire, and answers to other retirement benefits questions. There is no charge for the workshop, but registration for both clergy and attending spouses is required. Please register by September 18 with Rev. Steve Zekoff, Conference Benefits Officer, at 888-649-9025 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
