While most insurance companies are in business primarily to make a profit, Brethren Insurance Services is a not-for-profit provider that exists to offer quality health insurance for its members. Insurance staff members work hard at forming positive customer relationships so that members do not feel like a number or statistic.
Medicare Supplement insurance is offered to Medicare-eligible employees who work 20 or more hours per week at a participating employer with fewer than 20 employees, as well as their Medicare-eligible spouses.
This insurance is also available to Medicare-eligible retirees of a Church of the Brethren-affiliated employer, as well as their Medicare-eligible spouses, widows, or widowers.
In addition, Long-Term Care insurance is available to all Church of the Brethren employees and members, as well as their families and friends.
If you are 50 years old or older by the end of the calendar year, you may contribute additional funds to your Pension account beyond the elective-deferral contribution limit. (Code § 414(v))

Pastors are eligible for dental, vision, life, long- and short-term disability, and accidental death and dismemberment insurance through Brethren Insurance Services.
While Brethren Insurance Services offers an array of ancillary insurance products to Church of the Brethren pastors and employees who work 16 hours a week or more, Annual Conference delegates discontinued Brethren Medical Plan coverage for the Ministers’ Group in 2007. Today, medical coverage through Brethren Medical Plan is only available to Brethren-affiliated employer groups.
