401k Plan and Beneficiaries:
There have been some questions about 401k plan beneficiaries not being listed with Merrill Lynch after the transition from Vanguard. Merrill Lynch maintains beneficiary information for participants in the Nicor Gas Thrift Plan. If you haven't designated your beneficiary since the Plan transferred to Merrill Lynch, please take a few minutes to do so. If you have already designated your beneficiary, now might be a good time to review that designation. To designate or to review your beneficiary go to www.benefits.ml.com where you can update you beneficiaries online or print a form and mail in your beneficiary information. You can also call (800) 228-4015 and designate beneficiaries over the phone.
The company has provided the union a draft of the new contract books for review. Once reviewed, thecompany will begin the process of printing and distributing the new contracts to all bargaining unitemployees. We hope that the contract books will be delivered in the next couple of months.
