Tandem, the State’s 457 savings plan for public employees, is getting a new partner. Starting in January, Great-West Financial® will begin providing our plan administration, record keeping and education. Your investment choices and other account information will move automatically to the new service provider.
Keep in mind that you will still be in the Tandem 457 Plan. Your money is in Tandem and with its menu of investment options. You do not need to do anything if you are happy with your current portfolio makeup. We’ll just have someone else doing the record keeping and paperwork.
Please note, as part of the transition, you will receive a statement with a $0 balance from ING/Voya. Don’t worry, this is just reflecting the transfer to Great-West Financial.
This publication provides important information about the transition, so please take some time to read it carefully.
The transition from ING/Voya will begin at 3 p.m. CST on December 23, 2014, and will be completed on January 21, 2015. During this time you will not be able to make changes to your account.KPERS 457 Informational Flyer
