Market Timing/Excessive Trading Guidelines
Before you change your investment elections, please be sure to review the Market Timing/Excessive Trading Guidelines. Understanding the guidelines will allow you avoid trading restrictions.

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:     2023 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.
