The Christian Reformed Church has defined benefit pension plans for ordained ministers' of the Word.  This is how synod has determined we will take care of our pastors in retirement. The primary features of the Plans include four benefit groups, as follows: 1) Retirement benefits commencing at age 66 or early retirement benefits in a reduced amount beginning at age 55; 2) Long-term disability benefits provided through an insurance company; 3) Survivors’ benefits paid to a surviving spouse when death of a member occurs while in active service; 4)  Orphans’ benefits paid to a member’s orphaned children up to age 18, or to age 21, if in school.
