Designed for Your Needs
Comprehensive services customized to your needs.
Add value to your retirement plan.
GuideStone's broad retirement service offering means you won't have to look elsewhere for expertise, consulting, compliance, recordkeeping or education. That saves you time and money. By utilizing our customized pricing, you can more effectively achieve your goals as a faith-based organization and prepare your employees for a successful retirement.
GuideStone® retirement plans offer industry-leading church plan design, faith-based investments, administration services, transparent plan fees and expenses, and participant/plan education.
As a ministry, GuideStone understands faith-based organizations like yours. We understand you're seeking value, and we intend to deliver.
GuideStone provides competitive and customized pricing options.
We do this by allowing the choice of share class and investment lineup.
Choose from two retirement plan structures:
The unbundled approach is simply a different way of distributing and disclosing costs, as each example results in the same total balance of $10,500. It's important to note that changing the plan servicing fee to be a quarterly deduction from an account is NOT a higher fee. Rather, the unbundling is meant to improve fee transparency and understanding for plan participants.
Examples above are based on a $10 million plan.
Participants may also request certain services anytime, and expenses will continue to apply only to their specific retirement account. Examples of these participant services include:
- Loan setup and maintenance
- Qualified domestic relations order
- Optional GuideStone Personal Advisory Services™
Competitive pricing comes bundled with values.
Provide your employees access to the nation’s largest Christian-screened mutual fund family.1
We trust you’ll find GuideStone offers one of the best values in the retirement plan market. More than 38,000 churches and ministry organizations do. However, more than being competitively priced, it’s our Christian values and faith-based investment screening that make us most attractive to our plan sponsors.
GuideStone was founded more than 100 years ago as a relief board, helping meet the basic needs of elderly pastors and their wives, and today helps nearly 200,000 participants prepare for their futures. We were screening on values before it was popular to do so — well before formal faith-based investing even existed.
Just as church plans are different from other retirement plans, the Christian values-based investor differs in how they make decisions. GuideStone understands this commitment because GuideStone shares this commitment.
We take a stand for life, family, stewardship, health and safety, never investing in any company that’s publicly recognized as being in the alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography or abortion industries.
GuideStone also advocates for plan sponsors whose fiduciary duties are increasingly crucial, despite church plans not being subject to the same regulations as those of other nonprofits or corporate counterparts.
Throughout the journey, we support ministry leaders with a comprehensive retirement plan designed to wholly prepare them for their retirement years.
