The Pension Fund Advantage
Serving those who serve.
For more than 125 years, we’ve served our members true to our values of integrity, security, and compassion. Pension Fund relies on a solid funding formula and experienced team of investment professionals to manage and grow your retirement income.
We pride ourselves on being more than just a retirement provider. We are committed to being there for our members and their families — not just in retirement, but also during their greatest time of need like in the event of a death or disability. We measure our success by protecting and adding value for your retirement.

Why Pension Fund?
Our history pre-dates Social Security.
Since 1929, Pension Fund's plan design and administration have weathered market downturns, and our Pension Plan remains among the top most highly funded plans.
Your money stays in your pocket, not ours.
We’re a ministry with no hidden investment fees or administrative charges to manage your assets. In fact, when plan reserves exceed what is required to pay current and future benefits (and any potential market decline), Pension Fund's board of directors may declare additional earnings — meaning more money for you in retirement.
We worry about investments (so you don't have to).
Other retirement plans often force you to make an educated guess as to your investment options. With Pension Fund, enrollment is the only requirement for you to benefit from our expertise and knowledge in managing your financial assets.
Our conservative investment strategy is tried and true.
We engage various professional investment managers and take a “long-term opportunistic” investment philosophy with our members’ funds. This disciplined investment strategy is based on policies that govern asset allocation, liquidity requirements, sector restrictions and risk tolerance. Investment performance is closely monitored to ensure investment returns meet expectations.

Need convincing? Just ask our satisfied members and retirees.
Our members and retirees know we practice what we preach. Pension Fund retirees and pensioners are our biggest advocates. In fact, some of our members make more money in retirement than they did during their time working in ministry.*
