Please contact us by December 16 if you would like funds in your account before Christmas. Final December support distributions will be made on January 12th for all missionaries regardless of their regular pay date. Contacting us by December 16 will enable us to schedule your funds around bank closings and holiday hours.

January Income Totals
During a typical month, we close the books on the 25th, and any checks received after that date are posted to the following month.
Due to receipting requirements, we cannot do this in the month of December. As a result, please be aware that your December support total may be higher than normal, while your January support total may be lower than normal. Please be sure to plan ahead for this!
WWNTBM currently offers our missionaries the option of participating in a 403(b) Retirement Plan, the non-profit version of a 401(k) plan. We encourage all of our missionaries to participate in some type of retirement planning. If you do not currently have a 403(b) account and would be interested in opening one, please contact our office for a listing of vendors and more information.
Due to IRS regulations, we are required to use a Third Party Administrator (TPA) to handle all 403(b) accounts. The administrative fee is $50.00 per year, which will be deducted from Support each January or February for those who contribute. The TPA assists us by administering our plan and keeping us in compliance with the Department of Labor and IRS codes.
Please note that loans and hardship withdrawals are no longer allowed. Regulations require that individuals inform the Office before taking any distributions of funds or making any changes to their accounts. We need to know in advance in order to avoid our own liability and to help insure that the account holder is provided with the most recent information.
Please see the file in SecureCloud for the latest information on contribution amounts and limits for 2014 and 2015.
