How to enroll in the RSP

The Retirement Savings Plan (RSP) is an optional, voluntary plan, funded by employee contributions. ​You may enroll in the RSP at any time if your employer offers the plan to you.

​The Fidelity Investments enrollment guide includes information to help decide how much to invest and choose appropriate fund options. The guide includes the two forms needed to enroll:

You can also request these forms by calling the Board of Pensions at 800-773-7752 (800-PRESPLAN). Complete both forms, and return them to your employer to process. Do not send them to the Board.

Beneficiary designation

When you enroll in the RSP, you must designate one or more beneficiaries to receive payment of your RSP account in the event of your death. If you are married and designate a primary beneficiary other than your spouse, the plan requires your spouse’s written consent. At any time after enrolling in the RSP, you may designate or change beneficiaries through the Fidelity website or by calling Fidelity at 800-343-0860.
