The Conference Forum, as other communications with the conference benefit officers, treasurers and staff, has provided context to the information provided below.

This handout was provided during the Benefit Plan Design and the Road to Implementation presentation.

Retirement Contributions Video Now Available

Wespath recently completed a video showcasing two types of retirement plans: defined benefit and defined contributions. This video was first shown during the Conference Forum. We hope that it will provide a clear, concise message that helps participants understand retirement plans ahead of any potential changes during General Conference 2020.

Watch the video here.

We will post snippets linking to the full video on our social media (Facebook and Twitter) during the week of April 22nd. Please consider promoting this video to your participants, such as by sharing the social media links or posting the link on your webpage.
