"THE FOLLOWING EMAIL WAS
RECEIVED BY US AND WE ARE PASSING IT ON TO YOU JUST IN CASE YOU MAY HAVE SOME
MONEY DUE TO YOU THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT! I KNOW OF THREE RETIREES
THAT HAVE CHECKED THIS OUT BY CALLING THE 800 NUMBER (BELOW) AND HAVE
RECEIVED A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY HAD NOT BEEN AWARE OF. I ALSO
CALLED AND DIDN'T HAVE ANY LUCK... I.E. NO MONEY.
I AM NEITHER PROMOTING, ENDORSING OR RECOMMENDING THIS AND STRICTLY
PROVIDING THIS TO YOU AS INFORMATION THAT MAY BENEFIT THOSE OF YOU THAT HAD
INVESTMENT IN THE LONG TERM SAVINGS PLAN for MANAGEMENT EMPLOYEES (LTSPME).
ALSO MENTIONED IN THE PROSPECTUS UPDATE LETTER WERE THE RETIREMENT SAVINGS &
PROFIT SHARING PLAN (RSPSP) & THE LONG TERM SAVINGS & SECURITY PLAN (LTSSP).
SO IF YOU ARE/WERE INVOLVED IN ANY OF THESE PLANS YOU MAY WANT TO CONTACT
FIDELITY AT THE 800 NUMBER BELOW.
I DO KNOW THAT THIS IS LEGITIMATE.
THE FOLLOWING IS FROM A FELLOW RETIREE:
This may be old info
to you, or something you've already handled, OR it might uncover some
surprise funds for you.
I think everyone who had 401-K
funds inside their LTSPME Plan administered by Fidelity Investments probably
received correspondence from Fidelity a few months ago indicating you could
withdraw or remain a participant in a Class Action Suit against AT&T Corp.
Also indicated you would be entitled to receive benefits from the proposed
settlement IF you had an investment in the AT&T Stock Fund between Sept.
1999 and Dec. 2000. Apparently AT&T had agreed to create a settlement fund
of 29 million $$ to compensate the participants of the Class Action Suit. A
New Jersey Court was supposed to approve or reject that proposed settlement
on Sep 19, 2005. Would appear they did approve and finalize the settlement
on/about that time.
Some retired & former
participants in the LTSPME Plan received other correspondence from Fidelity
referring to an update to the AT&T U.S. Equity Fund. Was a rather confusing
bit of information, but suggested a call to the AT&T Savings Plan Center if
you had questions. A former co-worker, retired since 1989 did call the
phone #, discovered he had a bit over
$2300. in his old Fidelity account that he assumed was zero, since he had
rolled those 401-K funds to another custodian some 10 years ago. Has since
received those funds minus 20% withholding for FIT. Plans to hand deliver
those proceeds to the current custodian of their Self Directed IRA Accounts
I have since called Fidelity
and found I have some $960. in their accounts even though I rolled the
entire values in their accounts to another custodian in 2003. Another
retiree who left his 401-K invested with Fidelity since 1989 found his
account had suddenly increased in value by some $960. apparently added to
his account as a result of the settlement.
At this time, we have no
earthly idea how the $$ amounts credited to the old accounts were
determined, or why there is significant differences in the amounts. May be
determined by ONLY the amount invested in the AT&T Stock Fund during the Sep
99 & Dec 2000 timeframe, and possibly nothing to do with our investments in
the US Equity Fund or the US Fixed Income Fund. Good chance those funds were
renamed 1-2 times probably dropping the "US" from the names.
If you choose to call Fidelity
1-800-610-7100 -- Think
you will find your old PIN will not work and you cannot determine much from
their automated TT System. Touching the "O" button seems to get a CSR in
pretty short order. Appears they need to confirm your SS#, DOB, Mailing
Address (and Bell System Service Date) to discuss any account balance or
explain your withdrawal options.
If you are past age of 70
1/2 they must send you the amount required as a Mandatory Withdrawal for
2006 on your first call.
You can call the next day, request remainder of the funds, less 20% FIT be
sent direct to you, OR rolled over to another custodian you might have an
IRA account with. Suspect you would need to provide address, your account #,
Tax id, ect. for the new custodian if you want them to mail direct. Or so
long as you're over 59 1/2 believe they will send you the funds, and you can
deliver to the other custodian of your choosing.
ask if you have a copy and have read the IRS Rules/Regs on withdrawal or
rollover of Pre-Tax retirement funds. penalties for early withdrawals, ect.,
ect. Unless you answer YES''' there will be a few days delay while they
mail you those R&R's and put your withdrawal put on hold until you advise
you have now read/understand the regulations.
