BlackOut Notice: Kent Companies PSP 401(k)

Time Sensitive Information for all Participants in the Kent Companies, Inc. Profit Sharing and 401(k) Savings Plan

Macatawa Bank Retirement Plan Services will soon become the investment provider and record keeper for your retirement plan.

What Is Changing?

There are many enhancements coming to your plan.

  • New Funds allowing for rich diversity.
  • One-on-One Meetings with local financial representatives.
  • Local Provider to assist you with all plan questions.

The Blackout Period—December 22,  2017 to January,  2018

In order to move your account information and balances from the current service provider to Macatawa Bank, a period of account inactivity will be necessary.  Terms commonly used to describe this period of account inactivity are “blackout”, “lockdown”, “quiet”, or “freeze” periods. We will be using the term “blackout” in this notice.

The blackout period begins December 22, 2017 and is expected to conclude during January 2018.  We will keep you informed of the anticipated “end” date as the time gets closer.  During the blackout period you will not be able to:

  • Request fund reallocations or transfers.
  • Make investment direction elections.
  • Request a final distribution, in-service withdrawal or hardship withdrawal.
  • Request new participant loans.
  • Access the voice response unit or web site you have been accessing up until now.

After the blackout period ends, you will again be able to do all the items listed above.

Your Account During the Black Out Period

During the blackout period, your account will be fully invested and will share in any market gains or losses.

Listed below are the funds your current provider offered and the funds Macatawa Bank is offering.  Note that any fund you are holding on December 29, 2017 will be sold and replaced by the fund directly opposite to it on the table below.  This will happen automatically with no action from you.
