Customer Question
I recently had problems...

I recently had problems with my bank account. Last months benefits were applied to the correct acct because it was forwarded from the old account. This month the old account was closed and the benefits were not forwarded to the new (correct) account. They were returned. OLd account last four 1172 New account last four 1622. Can I change account numbers? What happens to this months benefits?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?
