John Wieland homes dissolved original retirement plan and started new one in 1986. I was employed 1981 thru 1985 and had 80% vesting in profit sharing plan. I received Social Security letter stating John Wieland Homes reported I had annuity valued at 12,612 in 1990. John Wieland Homes cannot locate any records for this. Any ideas on how to proceed?
Anytime i have dealt with these it requires some phone calls and lots of wait music. The two routes I have used in the past is to call the IRS and see if they have more info on who the plan was with I.E. Metlife, Lincoln, ING. The second is to find someone who is with or was with the company (John Wieland Homes) at that time and find who the investment firm was that held and currently holding the money.
Good Luck, David Kleinik
Was there contact information in the letter?
Thanks for your submitting your question. Brightscope is an aggregator of retirement plan information however does not handle your employer or former employer’s retirement plan specifically. If you still have the contact information of the person who handled anything to do with human resources at the company that would be your first place to start for the information you are looking for.
