Personal information updates

You may change your personal information at any time. Call your active provider directly for changes to your name, address or beneficiary designation. The RIC office does not need notification of these changes since your record is updated through payroll.

You may change your active provider investment selections at any time with no fees. Simply call your provider or make the changes to your accounts online (see the Provider section for web access).

  • You may redirect your future contributions to alternative investments within RIC

If you are with an inactive provider, changes may or may not be allowed. Contact your provider to determine the procedure for changing your investment selection.

A provider transfer refers to the movement of some or all of your RIC dollars from one investment provider to another provider in the plan.

 

Provider changes

Transfers between active providers are not recommended unless you have been dissatisfied with your current active provider services or investments over a reasonable amount of time. Investments with an active provider have no restrictions or fees for transfers.

Some participants still have assets invested with an inactive provider and need to be aware that restrictions and/or fees may exist for transfers (call your inactive provider to confirm).

To complete a transfer, be sure to establish an account with the receiving provider first. Use the RIC Account Form to request a transfer of your assets from the old provider.

See Provider Transfers for more information.

 

Redirect your future contributions

You may redirect your future contributions to different investments (within your provider product) at any time. There are no transaction fees. You may wish to keep invested assets as they are or reallocate them to different investment options. Call your active provider directly or log into your provider's website to change your accounts online.

If you have assets with an inactive provider, you may or may not be able to change your investments by phone or internet. Your provider may require that you make your request in writing. Contact your inactive provider or advisor to ask what is required for making these changes.

 

Beneficiary changes

To change your beneficiary at any time, call your active provider directly.

If you are with an inactive provider you may change your beneficiary by completing a RIC Inactive Provider Beneficiary Form.
