Transitioning from one congregational-employer to another?
Hoping that your employee benefits will transition too?
Use the Benefits Transition/Coverage Continuation Form created by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Office of Church Staff Finances (OCSF). Completing this form helps to ensure a smooth transition of the benefits you obtain through OCSF when you move from one congregation to another. The form may also be useful as you prepare for conversations regarding your employee benefits.
The form must be completed within 30 days after your official start date at your new congregation. For example, if your start date is August 1, the form must be received by OCSF on or before August 30.
The UUA Health Plan (UUAHP) offers consistent coverage everywhere in the United States.
For those currently enrolled in the UUAHP:
For those NOT currently enrolled in the UUAHP:
The Unitarian Universalist (UU) Organizations Retirement Plan enables transitioning employees to easily continue their retirement plan savings while serving different congregations throughout their ministry.
Once you begin your Plan with the UU Organizations Retirement Plan at a participating congregation, you may bring it with you to new congregations if they are also a participating employer.
If your new congregation is not a participating employer and you would like your Retirement Plan to continue, please have your congregation review the Enrollment Instructions for congregations just starting.
The Unitarian Universalist Group Insurance Plans (UUGIP) offer three types of coverage: Life/Accidental Death & Dismemberment (Life/AD&D), Long-Term Disability (LTD) and Dental coverage.
Whether or not you are currently carrying GIP coverage(s), read the Benefits Transition/Coverage Continuation Form, review the details of coverage associated with each benefit, and agree with your new congregational-employer about participation in the plans and funding of the premiums. Then complete and send your Benefits Transition/Coverage Continuation Form to OCSF.
