Fellowship Health and Pension Plans

Health Plan

The Fellowship Group Insurance Plan was designed to provide a single package that would include Extended Health Care, Dental Coverage, Life Insurance, Accident Insurance, Longterm Disability and a provision for local churches to assist in providing for Short-term Sick Leave. In addition, optional life and accident insurance for the insured and their spouse/children is also available.

Fellowship Group Benefits are administered by Gwen Pifer. She can be reached at the Fellowship National Ministry Centre by phone at 519-821-4830 ext. 229, or by email. For questions about Health and Dental coverage or claims, contact GreatWest Life at: 1-800-957-9777.

Pension Plan

The Fellowship Pension Plan is registered with Canada Revenue Agency, which allows tax deductibility of contributions. The Plan is also registered with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario, the administrative body charged with oversight of pension plans operating within the province.

Participation in the plan is open to employees of Fellowship Baptist Churches. In situations where provincial pension legislation in the province of residence differs from that of Ontario, those plan
members will be extended the local provincial entitlements.

Sun Life Financial provides investment management and record-keeping services for the plan and plan members. The Fellowship provides service to the plan members for enrollment, retirement, termination, death, government reporting, general inquiries, collection and forwarding of contributions, as well as the distribution of annual statements. Members are charged a small yearly fee for these services.

The Fellowship Pension Plan is administered by Mr. Rob Cole, our Director of Ministry Support Services. He can be reached at the Fellowship National Ministry Centre by phone at 519-821-4830 ext. 226, or by email.
