How do I request an outbound rollover for my GuideStone retirement account?

This article is only for employer-sponsored plans such as a 403(b), 401(k), etc. To roll out your GuideStone Funds IRA, please contact us at 1-888-GS-FUNDS (888-473-8637).

If your funds are available for distribution, you can request a rollover online through MyGuideStone®. GuideStone will not accept another institution's paperwork to transfer your retirement account. 

Once logged in, follow the steps below:

1. Click the “Retirement and Investments” tab.

2. Click “Manage Accounts”.

3. Under Withdrawals, click “Make a Withdrawal” to open the withdrawal tool.

4. On the page that you select the amount to withdraw, check the box, "I would like to roll over to GuideStone Funds or another institution" and follow the next steps. 

Note: 

  1. If you are unable to complete the request, please contact us. We'd be happy to assist you.
  2. If you have a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the current year but have not yet satisfied the requirement, the tool will not display this option. You must first satisfy your RMD before rolling over. Click here for more information about RMDs.

Please carefully read the Special Tax Notice on the signature page. This notice has important information about the taxation of your distribution and is time-sensitive. You may also request a copy of the special tax notice to be mailed to you for free.
