1. Are OPC Pension Plan withdrawals taxable?
The OPC Pension Plan was replaced by the OPC 403(b) Plan, and withdrawals of money which was contributed on a pre-tax basis (which is generally the case) are considered to be taxable ordinary income, taxed at whatever your particular tax rate would be in the year of the withdrawal. The exception, as we noted in the webinar, is that under current tax law, a retired minister could be withdrawing as much as $21,000 per year (for 2018) and have it considered Housing Allowance, thus making those withdrawn amounts tax free. Finally, if someone has made Roth (after-tax) contributions to the 403(b) plan, they can withdraw Roth balances tax free.
