    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    Benefits and Administrative Services


    The Benefits Office of the Upper New York Conference fulfills the mission of being God’s love to our neighbors in all places by caring for those who serve. The Benefits Office connects with clergy to promote the five areas of health: physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial. Benefits team members strive to provide efficient and effective administration of policies and benefit programs as well as educational opportunities to support clergy and Conference staff as they fulfill their vital roles in service to the Church. 

    The Benefits Office is organized into four ministry areas: Church Employers & Clergy Taxes; Pension and Financial Planning, Health and Wellness Benefits; and Wellness Initiatives.

    With more than 140,000 members, the Upper New York Annual (Regional) Conference of The United Methodist Church comprises 825 local churches and 90 new faith communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our vision is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
