To help you achieve financial security in retirement, the Board of Benefits Services (BOBS) provides the RCA 403(b) Retirement Program. The retirement program is designed for clergy, missionaries, and qualifying lay employees of the RCA, its agencies, and its affiliates. (The RCA Retirement Plan is an old plan that continues to cover participants who were originally enrolled in this plan. New participants will be enrolled in the RCA 403(b) Retirement Program.)

Ready to retire?
If you are an RCA-ordained minister, please contact your classis clerk to declare retirement. The classis will notify the BOBS office once your retirement is approved. We will send you a retirement kit after receiving the retirement notification from your classis.
If you are a lay employee, please contact your last RCA employer to complete the Participant Retirement/Termination Notification Form and return it to the BOBS office.
