DALLAS (BP)–GuideStone Financial Resources now is providing its participants with online access to their account statements via its MyGuideStone website. The new statements provide helpful graphs and charts that can aid participants in determining whether they are on track for retirement.
Participants can access MyGuideStone at www.MyGuideStone.org.
“The new statements will provide enhanced planning information for our participants,” GuideStone President O.S. Hawkins said. “The shift to electronic delivery provides improved security for our participants. Rather than having sensitive personal financial data sitting in your postal mailbox, you will be able to access it on a secure server. E-delivery also offers a significant cost savings to GuideStone over printing and mailing statements each quarter.”
Participants who have been receiving paper statements will continue to receive a printed and mailed statement once annually, at the conclusion of the fourth quarter. The year-end statement will show a report for account activity for the entire year. Participants can opt to receive the year-end statement electronically by registering their preferences at MyGuideStone. Participants also can register their preferred e-mail address at MyGuideStone so that they will be notified when the quarterly statements are available.
Statements are available as a PDF file that can be saved to participants’ computers or easily printed for personal files.
Participants who are unable to receive electronically delivered statements and want to continue receiving quarterly statements may request paper statement delivery by contacting GuideStone Customer Relations at 1-888-98-GUIDE (1-888-984-8433) Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Central time.
GuideStone has created a brief video explaining the changes to the account statements as well as how to access the new statements. It can be viewed by logging on to the participant’s MyGuideStone account at www.MyGuideStone.org
