Why is PenChecks Processing Your Distribution?
Many times, employers and retirement plan service providers designate PenChecks Trust as the retirement account custodian for former employees that are entitled to a distribution. As a custodian, PenChecks processes your distribution or establishes an Automatic Rollover IRA on your behalf, ensuring compliance with applicable DOL and IRS regulations until you claim your funds.
If you were directed to PenChecks by a former employer, our short video will explain one of the most common reasons you have an account with PenChecks and your options for claiming your hard-earned funds.”
