What services does MAP provide?
Benefits Plan Administrator
MAP can serve as your benefits administrator. For example, when a new worker is hired, MAP can handle the enrollment process by distributing and collecting enrollment forms and entering the worker’s information into all benefit systems. But MAP goes beyond paperwork, helping with new hire orientation by presenting a benefits overview to help your workers understand the benefits you’re providing. In addition, as your new worker settles in, MAP will serve as a dedicated resource for benefit questions and help.
Ministries face unique payroll and compliance needs. MAP helps your workers to be paid accurately and on time, while helping your ministry maintain tax compliance.
- Establish new hires into the payroll system.
- Process payroll and submit tax payments.
- Calculate and remit Concordia Retirement Savings Plan 403(b) contributions.
- Assist with the unique needs of rostered and called workers.
- Support workers by answering payroll questions and providing help as needed.
Unlike corporate companies that focus on profits, LCMS ministries focus on advancing the mission and striving toward goals to serve Him better. MAP understands the financial intricacies of ministries and offers support through bookkeeping services, such as assisting with accounts payable, reporting and budgeting. Through MAP, your ministry has an affordable option to access church bookkeeping expertise, resources to help with compliance and guidance to help maintain organized financial records.
