Our Work


We Are Church Together

So We Can Embrace Every Day!

We are a church that takes care of each other. Portico Benefit Services is proud to continue a 200+ year Lutheran legacy of caring for those who serve, from pastors and their families to staff at social ministry organizations. As the ELCA’s benefit ministry, seeing the diverse needs of our national church community drives us to innovate: to control health care costs and increase total well-being, to help plan members retire with confidence, to advocate on behalf of church organizations, and to serve more people well.

At Portico, we’re inspired daily by those who commit to a life of service, and we’re grateful to walk alongside our plan members — providing benefits designed to help us all embrace every day.
