Pinnacle Health System Retirement Investment Account (RIA)
The Pinnacle Health System Retirement Investment Account (RIA) is part of the PinnacleHealth Retirement Program—and it supplements the benefits of your primary retirement savings vehicle, the Pinnacle Health System Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSAT) Plan. Together, these two Plans can help you build a more financially secure future. The RIA provides eligible employees with the opportunity to earn employer contributions, and to defer paying income tax on those contributions, along with any associated investment earnings, until they are withdrawn.
The Plan offers various investment options, which have been selected by PinnacleHealth. You decide where your employer's plan contributions should be allocated. Complete information about all the Plan's investment options is available in the Investment section of this website.
You can select or change your investment options at any time.
"Vesting" is a technical term that refers to your ownership of the money in your account. You are 100% vested in your employer's contributions after three years of service with at least 1,000 hours of service in each of those years.

Please note that withdrawals and distributions are subject to income taxes and potentially a 10% federal income tax penalty if taken before age 59½.

You can change your beneficiary any time by visiting www.prudential.com/online/retirement.
