In the future, to ensure that the requirements for loans and hardship withdrawals are met, you will need to obtain a voucher from CPI prior to receiving a loan or hardship withdrawal. The voucher can be obtained throught the CPI Participant Website. This voucher will need to be provided to your vendor(s) along with their standard forms. The voucher is needed since it lets your vendors know that you have met the regulatory requirements. The voucher does not guarantee that a loan or hardship withdrawal can be made, as each vendor may apply additional restrictions, but does verify that you have met the regulatory requirements to receive a loan or hardship withdrawal.
Also, if you want to make a contract exchange in the future (move money from one vendor to another), you will need to obtain a voucher from CPI. The voucher can be obtained through the CPI Participant Website. If the contract exchange is approved, you will be provided with a voucher, which will need to be provided to the transferring vendor along with the vendors transfer request forms. It is important that a voucher is obtained before assets are transferred. Any transfer that is made that does not comply with the final regulations could cause the loss of the tax-qualified status of the money transferred to the vendor. If this happens, the money will become taxable to the participant.
