Forms & Literature: Forms & Applications: 403(b)(7)

Due to regulatory changes, 403(b) plan participants need to open new accounts through their plan's third-party administrator (TPA) in order to continue to invest in Principal Funds after January 1, 2009. Contact your financial professional or employer to ensure that your salary deduction contributions can continue to be directed to your Principal Funds investment. After December 31, 2008, existing Principal Funds 403(b) accounts will no longer accept new contributions, transfers, or rollovers. An updated custodial agreement reflecting account changes was sent to affected shareholders November 25, 2008.
