Employee Benefits

The Episcopal Diocese of Washington offers a comprehensive array of benefits to clergy and lay employees through the Church Pension Group (CPG). These insure that both the person and the parish remain whole during times of injury and illness. We believe that we are called to be good stewards of ourselves. By using these benefits, you have access to information about living a healthy lifestyle, receiving quality care and locating support services.

If you are hiring a new employee, please complete the Request for Benefits form and return to Kathleen Hall. New employees have 30 days in which to enroll in health benefits, Group Life and Disability benefits. After this period, underwriting may be required.

Denominational Health Plan Policy

This policy concerning the denominational health plan ensures that the diocese and all of its congregations provide health insurance for all eligible employees. View the policy.
