Members will no longer be assigned to a Retirement Fund staff member based on the first letter of your last name. The new system will book your appointment with the benefits staff member who can best handle your request at the time that is most convenient for you.
(Note: Deadlines are usually the tenth of the month, unless that falls on a weekend. In that case, the deadline is the first Monday after the tenth. In November and December, deadlines are earlier due to the holidays. Check the website calendar for deadlines throughout the year.)
