Your former employer has limited control over your retirement plan account in their plan, and potentially has the ability to change fees or investment options; however, you'd receive notice prior to that taking effect.

As part of the Principal Rollover Plus program, you have the option to receive educational help from us on how you are doing with your financial goals. By providing a financial professional, we are not providing investment advice, undertaking an investment advisory relationship with you nor monitoring your investments for you. You should contact us if your financial situation changes. The advice was limited to the retirement account that was discussed. If you need additional or new guidance, please call us back.
