This is to notify you that <Client> has decided to engage GuideStone Financial Resources (“GuideStone”) as the sole investment provider for our organization’s 403(b) retirement plan. All employee 403(b) contributions will be directed to GuideStone effective <Date>.

Participants will be given the option to transfer their existing 403(b) account at your organization into GuideStone’s investment funds, and we would request your cooperation in processing these transfers in a timely manner.

Unless we hear otherwise from your organization by email or in writing on or before <Date>, <Client> we will assume that you are carrying out our direction to enforce the restriction on hardship distributions and loans.

Should you have any need for information regarding the administration of a participant’s orphaned contract under our plan, please contact:
