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

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

Once logged in, follow the steps below:

1. Under the Quick Links menu on the right-hand side of your Dashboard click the "Withdraw or Rollover Out" link.

2. 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. 

3.  Complete the withdrawal application and then provide your electronic signature. 

  • If your outbound rollover application requires Spousal Consent, you must print the application and have your spouse's signature notarized. 
  • If your outbound rollover application requires Employer Verification, you must have an authorized official from your employer fully complete this section (or previous employer if separated from service). You are not permitted to complete this section yourself. An electronic signature is permissible for the Employer Verification section.
  • Once you have obtained the required signature(s), use the Document Uploader to submit your application and receive the fastest possible service.
