If I quit working for my employer, can I still contribute to my retirement plan?

In most cases, no. Once you leave your employer, you are no longer eligible to participate in the employer's sponsored retirement plan; however, in most cases you may leave your balance invested in your GuideStone account at no additional cost.

If you transfer to a new church or agency affiliated with GuideStone, you will be able to continue your participation in a GuideStone retirement plan. Some retirement plans vary depending on your new employer.

If you transfer to an employer that is not affiliated with GuideStone, you may still be able to contribute to a GuideStone retirement plan by investing in an IRA. To learn more about IRAs, visit our IRA Help Center.
