New Look, New Resources and Easier Navigation at TVARS.com

The TVA Retirement System (TVARS) has launched a new and more user-friendly version of www.tvars.com for its members.  While much of the site’s content remains the same, the new easy-to-use format now gives quick and convenient access to benefits information and the latest TVARS news via simple links.

From within the site, members can click on “Retirement Tools” to access the TVARS SharePoint site (only available via the TVA network) to request a retirement benefit estimate, register to attend a meeting with a TVARS retirement consultant when available, and review a variety of retirement planning tools and resources.

New Online Beneficiary Designation Process for 401(k) Plan Participants

It’s now easier than ever before for TVA 401(k) Plan participants to designate and update their beneficiaries, thanks to a new online tool from Fidelity Investments.

The new tool replaces paper processing so that changes can be made quickly and easily. Your beneficiary designation becomes effective immediately upon completion of the online process.

The beneficiaries that you designate will receive payment of benefits provided under the plan in the event of your death. Take a few minutes now to view or update your current designations so that you can be confident that your plan assets will be distributed according to your wishes.

You can view and update your beneficiaries in just three easy steps:

1) Log on to NetBenefits at Fidelity.com/atwork.

2) Click on “Your Profile” on the top black bar.

3) Click on the “Beneficiaries” link in the “About You” section.

Retirement Services is no longer processing paper forms for Designation of 401(k) plan beneficiaries.  If you need assistance or do not have access to the online feature, contact Fidelity Investments at 800-354-7121.

Eligible Original Benefit Structure or Cash Balance Benefit Structure participants who want to update their beneficiaries for the death-in-service benefit and any Fixed and Variable Funds will still need to submit paper form RS-2 to the TVA Retirement System.  This form is available on the TVARS website at www.tvars.com
