Eligibility for participation in the CRP and CDSP
Plan provisions require that any worker, regardless of age, gender, occupation, or faith, who is customarily employed more than 20 hours per week and more than five consecutive months be enrolled in the Concordia Retirement Plan and Concordia Disability & Survivor Plan. A worker meeting this criteria is also eligible for the Concordia Retirement Savings Plan 403(b), if you offer this plan, and may be eligible for the Concordia Health Plan, depending on your organization’s hour’s declaration for eligibility. These provisions apply to all workers—pastors, teachers, and preschool teachers, as well as day care workers, custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers, and other occupations.
