Life insurance is mandatory for full-time clergy, which the Church Pension Fund provides at no charge as long as pension assessments are not in arrears. A congregation may purchase additional life insurance if it chooses. The insured must pay income tax on the value of life insurance in excess of $50,000. The imputed income amounts provided by Church Pension Group are emailed to clergy in early December of each year. This amount must be reflected on the clergy W-2.
