Consider Your Payment Options

Ensure your payments are processed promptly 

Written by Stephanie Abrell, American Church Group of Colorado, Nebraska, Dakotas, Wyoming, Kansas 

As many of us have experienced, mail can be unpredictable and held up during busy seasons. To help with this, Brotherhood Mutual has recently updated their billing address to provide more locations closer to specific regions. If you mail your payment or if your bank sends a payment on your behalf, be sure to provide them with Brotherhood Mutual’s new payment address. Payments mailed to the previous bank will be returned: 

 

Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company 

Dept 710069 

PO Box 514670 

Los Angeles, CA 90051-4670 

 

With many things happening at your ministry, you may find that mailing payments just isn’t convenient. Everyone has their preference regarding payments, but do you know what options are available to you? 

Brotherhood Mutual offers an online management system for your account. You can register for this account by visiting Brotherhood Mutual’s MyAccount page and providing an email and password. If you have more than one person on your team that needs access, that’s no problem! Each team member can have a separate login to the account. Here you’ll be able to see your payment history, make online payments, file claims online, and access additional policy information. We’re continuing to add more options to this page, so stay tuned! 

Sometimes receiving timely information by mail limits the amount of time you have to turn around with payment. That’s why Brotherhood Mutual also offers the option to elect electronic delivery for your invoices. Sign up to receive your invoices by email within your MyAccount! 

Want to make your payments automatically? We also offer an option to transfer funds each pay period without doing anything electronically. You’ll still receive an invoice when each payment is due so that you can plan for the amount and due date accordingly. This allows you to put your focus on ministry without worrying about the chance of an insurance lapse. Another perk to automatic payments or paying online through your MyAccount page is that you avoid that $6 service fee with each payment.  

Be sure to reach out to our service team if you have any questions regarding the options or payment plans available to you! We are here for you, and we have your back! You can reach them by phone at 877-794-2330 or by email at clientsupport@americanchurchgroup.com

School is Back in Session
School is Back in Session

As school is back in session, it’s important to make sure your school is equipped with the correct safety procedures. Thinking about your school’s physical security as a series of layers can help you find gaps in your plan. Transportation and volunteers are just two important aspects of your school safety plan to think about.

Uvalde School Shooting Causes Ministries to Question Their Preparedness
Uvalde School Shooting Causes Ministries to Question Their Preparedness

If there is one thing I have learned over the last decade while working private security and as a sworn peace officer, the more critical the incident, the more likely change will come out of it. Much like a pendulum, an incident occurs, and everyone cries for change.

Does Your Ministry Need Cyber Insurance?
Does Your Ministry Need Cyber Insurance?

Churches are increasingly becoming targets for cyber criminals. The most common attack is by sending “phishing” emails where the perpetrator poses as someone familiar to the ministry staff (like a senior pastor, deacon, elder, or someone trustworthy) and requests some sort of response.

Shepherding Ministries in a Time of Change
Shepherding Ministries in a Time of Change

Anyone who turns on the news, flips through a magazine, or browses the web can see that American society and culture are experiencing rapid transitions. Some ministries have valid concerns that issues surrounding societal shifts may expose them to negative publicity, governmental scrutiny, or litigation.

The questions become: when and how can ministries operate within their deeply held religious beliefs when they may conflict with others’ rights?

As we enter the middle of 2022 amidst uncertainty in many areas, we continue to look at ways our ministries may be exposed.
