Supplement One to the Clergy Retirement Security Program (CRSP), also known as the Pre-82 Plan, provides eligible clergy with a pension for their years of ministry with The United Methodist Church prior to 1982. The plan is designed to provide participants with one element of their overall retirement portfolio.
The Pre-82 plan was closed to new enrollments and no contributions were made after December 31, 1981. The Pre-82 Plan was replaced by the Ministerial Pension Plan (MPP) effective January 1, 1982. However, clergy who participated in the Pre-82 Plan and are vested are eligible to receive benefits at retirement.
