Pension Plans for Jewish Communal Agencies

By S.P. Goldberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1951

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.
