Decrease in Expense Ratios Effective 05/25/2018...
The 2018 Fee Reduction Notice which was included in the 2018 First Quarter Statement shows that the expense ratios of the funds listed have been reduced which will result in a higher return in the fund. You will not see this as a reduction to the returns paid, the returns paid are net of expenses. Therefore, if the expenses decrease the returns increase.

Investment Election Changes may be made on-line
Just log in and select "Election Change". The cutoff for completing election changes is 10:30am PT on trading days. Changes completed prior to 10:30am PT generally take place the same day, changes completed after the cutoff will generally trade the next trading day. If you would like to speak to an Advisor prior to making an election change, just call our Member Services Department.

2016 Fund Line-up Change Notice...
To see the transition from the Fidelity Funds to the new options available, please review the 2016 Fund Line-up Notice.

Default Investment Fund
When the Administrative Office has no investment direction (Enrollment/ Beneficiary Form) on file for you, your account balance will be automatically invested in the Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA). In other words, if you don't tell us where to invest your assets, they will be automatically invested in the QDIA until you tell us to differently.

To make your original investment elections, you must complete an "Enrollment/Beneficiary Form". This form allows you to make investment elections, designate a beneficiary and establish a PIN (personal identification member) to access your account. For more information please review the:     2017 Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA) Notice

Log in to our website with your e-mail address
Now you can log in with either your Social Security Number or your e-mail address. The first time you log in, you will be sent a validation e-mail. The e-mail will provide a link to validate your on-line access and you will be asked to enter your PIN.

Each time you change your e-mail address, you will receive a new validation e-mail. We have added these extra layers of protection to enhance the security of your on-line account access.
