Each year we are delighted to hear from many of Brethren Pension Plan’s retirees as they report to us each year about what is going on in their lives. These stories are then printed in our Retiree News publication, along with pictures, quotes, and a memorial tribute to Pension Plan members who have passed away during the previous year.
