Our Purpose

The Church Alliance strives to ensure that legislative and regulatory initiatives continue to fully address, protect and support the unique nature of retirement and health benefit plans operated by churches, religious institutions and affiliated organizations. The Church Alliance has addressed church plan issues related to significant pieces of legislation over the years, including:

  • The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA)
  • The Multiemployer Pension Plan Amendments Act of 1980 (MPPAA)
  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA)
  • The Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010
