The author presents preliminary findings from a study, undertaken by the Pension Study Committee of the National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, of the pension status of Jewish communal workers. Among the findings: despite the liberality of Social Security benefits, the maximum benefit is far less than needed; 75% of Jewish agencies have secured coverage under Social Security; fewer than half of Jewish communal employees have private retirement plans; and many pension plans do not permit transfer if the employee moves from agency to agency. The author discusses implications and questions raised by these preliminary findings.
