The Importance of Designating your Beneficiaries

Beneficiary designations allow your assets to pass directly to whomever you designate in the unfortunate event of your passing.  Your beneficiary designation will save your loved ones the costs and time involved with the probate process. In some cases, more value passes by beneficiary designations than under a will. 

Beneficiary designations are easy to make and relatively easy to change.  To designate or change your beneficiaries, log in to your NetBenefits account.

Consolidate Your Retirement Savings

If you have other retirement savings plans from a previous employer, consolidating your funds is a great way to maximize the compounding power that a larger balance can yield. You are permitted to roll over eligible pretax contributions from another 401(a), 401(k), 403(b), or governmental 457(b) retirement plan account, or eligible pretax contributions from individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Rollovers from Roth and after-tax sources are not allowed. Our dedicated Fidelity Financial Workplace Consultant, Tia Scott, is  available to assist with rollovers into the County plans. Schedule a complimentary, virtual appointment with Tia or call 800/343-0860.

Be sure to consider all your available options and the applicable fees and features of each before moving your retirement assets. Review “How to Roll Over a 401(k)” before you make your final decision.
