There's a lot of interest in this message board and I will admit I didn't look at every message to see if this has come up: (please bear with me..)
My wife's last paycheck indicated that the planned annual savings amount had been deducted from her pay. The statement for the year that the investment company sent indicates less. Uh-oh.
My initial inquiry with the investment company gave me a list of the dates and amounts invested, which agrees with the statements received. The person at the investment co. called the employer for me but the individual there never called her back.
My wife calls her employer (yeah, we "shoulda done this" first, maybe) and the person there says she needs to check with their "common remitter" (?????)
Here is what seems to be happening: The employer seems to be sending one big check to a brokerage company which then sends out checks to at least two other investment "options" (VALIC and Equitable). It also looks like some controls are not in place and somebody is lying to us.
If I could condense one comprehensive question it would be something like: What are the regulations here as far as handling this money is concerned and who do I come down on real hard and with what regulatory agency?

Any input is appreciated--
