During these uncertain times, as we all respond to the widespread health concerns resulting from the Coronavirus outbreak, it is of paramount importance to us to keep our employees safe while striving to maintain the level of service that you have come to expect from the YMCA Retirement Fund.

As you may know, this pandemic has contributed to the significant decline of the global financial markets. The Fund has weathered many economic downturns over its almost 100 years and we are confident that this will not be any different.

We want to assure our participants that your account balances are secure and have not decreased. Retirees will also continue to receive monthly annuity payments as promised.

As a long-term investor, the Fund is well-equipped to withstand short-term market volatility. We maintain a highly diversified portfolio and manage the assets of the Fund’s portfolio for the long term in order to protect against market volatility and safeguard your retirement savings.

Our customer service center is available to answer any questions and to assist you with your account. You may also access your account information and perform several account transactions on the Fund’s website every day, 24/7.

As your YMCAs are working to meet the needs of your communities, know that we are here to help. I could not be more grateful for the trust you have in us.

President and CEO, YMCA Retirement Fund
