I retired from my job in December. My 401K was with Fidelity. I had my brother help me so that I could transfer the funds from Fidelity to Vanguard. I called Fidelity and they told me that they would send paperwork for me to fill out. I would then need to send it back in order for them to release my money to me.
They released my money by giving me 3 different checks. I then sent those checks to Vanguard and so that my retirement can build. I can’t take anything out of this fund until June of 2018.
The other day I received a statement from Fidelity and saw that it shows I have $4,600.00 in a fund that my employer put in for me. I was shocked. I thought that I had taken everything out in Feb including the money that my employer invested.
I called a friend of mine to discuss this. She and her husband retired before I did from the same company. She said the same thing happened to her husband. He too received a statement from Fidelity several months after he retired and there was more money there for him too.
I am so excited. I will need to contact this company and go through that process once again asking them to release a check for me so that I can then put that new found money in Vanguard. Since I have the Vanguard account I have been making more of a profit each month that I ever did with Fidelity. Hopefully by the time I can start taking money out in 2018 I will have a nice amount invested.
I always said when I retired that God would find a way to take care of me. I am on a limited income right now, but if I can wait until I am 70 I will be able to take out my full social security benefits and also collect from my 401K. By then I would have a nice income to live on and not have to be on such a tight budget as I am on now.
I think I just received $4,600.00 worth of pennies from heaven.
