Why can't I see my beneficiaries online?

GuideStone allows you to designate your beneficiaries online. Click here to learn how to designate beneficiaries. 

If it has been awhile since you last provided your beneficiary designation, you may not see this reflected in your MyGuideStone® account. The forms listed in MyGuideStone® include both online and paper beneficiary designations submitted after the tool became available in January 2014. If you submitted a paper designation prior to that time, it will not be listed here, but may still be valid. 

The details of submitted paper designations are hidden online for security reasons. If you would like to review details on previous paper designations please contact us.

If you do not see a beneficiary designation from before 2014 listed online, it is always a good idea to keep your beneficiaries updated! You can submit a new beneficiary designation online at any time through MyGuideStone® to keep your preferences current. 

If you have never submitted a beneficiary designation by paper or online, the spouse on file is the designated beneficiary in most retirement plans.
