How to Rollover Qualified Assets to
Baylor Health Care System Retirement Plans
Steps to Directly Rollover from another qualified 401(k) or 403(b)
Plan to Baylor’s 401(k) Plan: [not from an IRA or a Roth 401(k)]

Please always refer to the Plan’s Summary Plan Description for more specific information Step 1:
Enroll in the Baylor Health Care System Retirement Savings Plan and complete at least one payroll contribution to the Plan.
Contact your previous 401(k) Plan Administrator to request your assets to be rolled out of that Plan(s) and into one of the Baylor Health Care System Retirement Savings Plan.
Checks must be rolled directly over from the prior plan. Request that the check be made out as follows:

The check is to be mailed to you directly.
At the time of the request for the check, you need to ask if the check will show what amount of the total check was contributed on a “Pre-Tax” basis and what, if any, was contributed on an “After-Tax” basis. No matter if this isn’t stated on the check, documentation must be provided from that Plan with this information. If “After-Tax” contributions are stated, this must also include all interest or earnings of the “After-Tax” contribution amount.
o Distribution Statement / Letter
