How did Goldstar Trust Obtain My Account?

The funds were part of your company sponsored retirement plan. The retirement plan contains a provision allowing the plan trustee(s) to distribute the participant’s vested account without consent in the event that the account holder cannot be reached. Per the Economic Growth & Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 accounts under the amount of $5,000 can be automatically rolled over into an Automatic Rollover IRA.
