If you have not created a MyGuideStone® account, you will need to go to, click on “Register now with MyGuideStone” and follow the steps for registration. 

If you are listing someone other than your spouse as Primary Beneficiary for your retirement account, you must get notarized spousal consent on the beneficiary designation application. You can find the Beneficiary Designation Application on our website by clicking here and looking under the "Employees" section.
