A benefit of your plan is you are automatically enrolled; you won’t need to go through a bunch of steps and screens to start the process. Of course, no action will be taken by us until you say it’s time.

When you are ready to start contributing, here’s all you have to do:

  • Set up your online account. You’ll need your account number, which you can get from your welcome letter or by calling us at 1-877-677-3678
  • Log in
  • Enter your contribution amount. You can get to the Change Contribution page from the drop-down menu
