Provided through Guidestone (formerly the Annuity Board) in cooperation with State Convention of Baptists in Indiana
The Church Annuity Plan is a 403(b)(9) retirement plan. By participating in this type of retirement plan, contributions you and/or your employer (church, school, or association) make into your retirement account can be tax-sheltered and tax-deferred. This means you will not pay taxes on your contributions or your earnings until withdrawal. The Church Annuity Plan is offered as an employer-sponsored retirement plan through your employer.
To receive state convention benefits, your church must contribute a minimum of $1,000.00 per employee per annum to Cooperative Program through SCBI. For church eligibility, contact your state convention office. Getting started
