Pension and Health Benefits
A Theology of Care
The primary goal of the New Mexico Board of Pension and Health Benefits is to provide insurance and retirement benefits for our clergy and professional lay employees. It is our calling and goal as United Methodists to be in communion and connection with each other throughout our lifetime of Christian service. To this end, we will endeavor to provide the best care and provisions available through various insurance and retirement plans to reward service with security and retirement with dignity.

Health Care Reform
The federal government enacted comprehensive federal health care reform in March 2010. This is perhaps the most significant piece of social welfare legislation in nearly 50 years. Over the next decade, this health care legislation will substantially alter the manner in which millions of Americans receive health care coverage. The "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," or "ACA," and the regulations issued under it will have significant short-term and long-term impacts on the health plans of The United Methodist Church.
