DRS Email 08-016, Transition Guide

DRS Notice

  • Notice No.: 08-016
  • Date: September 3, 2008
  • Applies to: All Employers
  • Subject: Transition Guide

The Transition Guide will be mailed this week to Plan 3 members, Judicial Retirement Account (JRA) members and Deferred Compensation Program (DCP) participants who have money invested in any of the three Horizon Funds. This guide explains the replacement of the Horizon Funds with new Retirement Strategy Funds. 

Should you have employees who contact you with questions, here are two important things to know:

  • If they wish to move into the new fund options, they don’t need to take any action. Their Horizon Fund balance will automatically move into the Retirement Strategy Fund that most closely corresponds with their expected retirement date.
  • Plan 3 members, call 1-888-711-8773 and select option 1

Thank you for your support with this transition. Should you have questions, please reply to this message or call Employer Support Services at 360-664-7200 (press option 2) or l-800-547-6657 (press option 6 then option 2).


If you have any questions regarding this DRS Notice, please contact Employer Support Services at (360) 664-7200, option 2, or 1-800-547-6657, option 6, option 2; or email us.
