Retirement Transition Changes for Deutsche Participants

Information on this page is for participants with a balance at Deutsche in the Optional Retirement Plan (the only plan that offers Deutsche plans). For all other changes during and after the transition, please see the Optional Retirement Plan page.

Your Current Balance

All assets in Deutsche accounts in the Optional Retirement Plan will transfer to Fidelity during the plan transition.


If you have a beneficiary on file at Deutsche, that information will not transfer to Fidelity during the transition. You can always choose a beneficiary after the transition with Fidelity, but you can also do so during the Early Choice Window in February and March of 2020.


Your last statement from Deustche will be your statement ending March 31, 2020. All statements after that date will come from Fidelity.
