2023 BEST Elder Benefit

First Ever BEST Elder Benefit $300 Each!

BEST will also issue its first ever Elders Benefit this year. On June 30, 2023, shareholder beneficiaries approved an amendment to BEST authorizing an optional BEST Elders Benefit program. As a result, the BEST Board of Trustees has approved a special distribution of $300 per eligible elder to be payable on December 7, 2023.  Combined with the $4.47 per share distribution by BEST, eligible elders with 100 shares in BNC will receive a total of $747.00 from BEST this year.  Eligible elders are those BNC shareholders who are sixty five years or older as of December 1, 2023.

Any elder desiring to opt out of the elder benefit program over concerns that the payment may impact their eligibility for state or federal assistance, may contact Ana Hoffman, BNC President & CEO.  For more information please call 907-543-2124 or email bethel@bncak.com.
