Welcome to your "Benefit Connection" to the Virginia Conference!  The office of the Virginia United Methodist Pensions, Inc. (VUMPI), located in the Virginia United Methodist Center in Glen Allen, Va., was established in 1965 to provide support for those actively employed in, or retired from, service in the ministry.   

Paragraph 639 of the 2008 Book of Discipline states that VUMPI shall "have charge of the interests and work of providing for and contributing to the support, relief, assistance, and pensioning of clergy and their families, other church workers, and lay employees of the United Methodist Church, its institutions, organizations, and agencies within the" Virginia Conference "except as otherwise provided for by the general board." 

Whether you are clergy or a lay employee, or you are a Plan Sponsor (employer) within the Virginia Annual Conference, VUMPI is your primary contact for all matters relating to pensions and insurance offered by the Virginia Conference and/or the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits of the United Methodist Church (GBOPHB).
