A company that I worked for long ago stopped mailing retirement savings statements or any info about my account. It took about a year for me to notice. They first switched from quarterly to bi-annual statements, then yearly, and then nothing.
When I realized I hadn't seen a new statement in a while I started making calls. After several weeks of attempts and hours on the phone, I finally found someone who helped me and regained access to their new system and/or management company. Anyhow, that experience had me nervous about the money I'd just let sit for years after I left the company.
While I was with the company I contributed as much as possible to the retirement account. As I recall it was just one withholding and the company matched some percentage. Also, when I left I'd served enough time to be "fully vested". Anyhow, the new online overviews, statements and terminology are a little confusing.
- I want to understand the terms here and know if all of the money in the accounts is mine (and why are they listed as "employER assets")?
- Can I move all of the money from both the pension (discretionary) and tax sheltered 403(b) (matching and deferral) to my current employer plans or my own IRA?
