Those with the lowest pensions and the greatest need have the opportunity to receive supplemental relief in addition to their pensions.
Many times the twelve checks Pension Fund sends out a year are just enough to get by. This is why the church has an opportunity to give a "13th Check". Pension Fund is allowed to take a special offering at General Assembly for the 13th Check fund. The money is then distributed over the next two years to those who are in need and receiving Ministerial Relief and Supplemental Gift pensions. The extra boost in income is a highly anticipated and appreciated gift for those who served the Church at the cost of their own financial success. We have a yearly appeal to help grow this fund.
