Account verification

When communicating with our team, we will ask you to answer questions about yourself and/or the plan for security verification. In general, it’s always helpful to provide your account ID, which can be used as one form of verification.

  • 401(k) participants and IRA users can find their account ID within the menu under their name in the main navigation of their participant dashboard or at the top of the Account page if using the mobile app.

  • Plan sponsors and administrators can find their account ID within the dropdown menu under the company name in the upper right-hand corner of their administrator dashboard.
