ELCA Board of Pensions is now Portico

The ELCA Church Council amended a continuing resolution in the constitution to reflect the Board of Pensions' name change to Portico Benefit Services. Board trustees unanimously approved the switch at their November meeting.

Under the name of Portico Benefit Services, the Minneapolis-based ministry will continue to provide health, retirement, disability and survivor benefits and related services for 50,000 active and retired ELCA pastors, rostered laity, lay employees and their families.

The new name is grounded in Scripture. Jesus taught in the portico of Solomon's temple (John 10:22-28). Portico references can also be found in Acts 3 and 5.
