If you are currently contributing to RIC, you have the option at any time to change your:
Payroll deduction amount changes
To make a change to the amount or taxation of your payroll deductions at any time, complete the RIC Account Form.
You may choose to have your deductions taken pretax (before state and federal tax withholding) or post-tax Roth (after state and federal tax withholding) or a combination of pretax and Roth.
Remember that all money deposited into RIC must go through your paycheck.
If you are terminating from State employment and would like to defer vacation and/or sick pay with your last check, please indicate the final paycheck effective date on the RIC Account Form.
Taxation of payroll deductions changes
You may choose to have your deductions taken pretax (before state and federal tax withholding) or post-tax Roth (after state and federal tax withholding) or a combination of pretax/post-tax. You may change the way your payroll deductions are taxed at any time. To make a change to the taxation of your payroll deductions, complete the RIC Account Form.
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.
If you are with an inactive provider, contact your provider to ask what is required for making changes to your name and address.
Investment selection changes
If you are with an inactive provider, changes may or may not be allowed. Contact your inactive provider to determine the procedure for changing your investment selection.
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.
Redirect 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.
To change your beneficiary at any time, call your active provider directly.
