Do not use the same User ID and password for multiple sites and be sure to create strong passwords that cannot be easily guessed. Be wary when typing user names or passwords on public computers for any of your financial accounts. Avoid it if possible, but if you must use a public computer, always clear the most recent history, clear the cache, and make sure you log out before you end your session. Keep in mind that public computers and wireless networks can never be considered 100% secure.

Retirement Account Questions
1
How do I roll over a 401(k) or other qualified retirement plan into a Pax World IRA?

To intiate  a transfer or direct rollover from your current qualified retirement plan or IRA into a Pax World IRA, complete the Traditional IRA & Roth IRA Transfer of Assets/Direct Rollover form. If you do not already have a Pax World IRA account, you will also need to complete a Traditional IRA & Roth IRA Application. Also, find out if your employer or current custodian/plan administrator requires you to complete any additional forms.

Return the completed Transfer of Assets/Direct Rollover form (and Application, if applicable) to Pax World, along with any additional forms that your employer or plan administrator may require. Be sure to find out if the employer or current plan administrator requires a signature guarantee on the Transfer of Assets/Direct Rollover form. Pax World will forward the transfer request to the current plan administrator, who will then send the money directly to your Pax World IRA account.

If your current custodian has already sent the account assets directly to you, you will have 60 days to rollover those assets into an IRA in what is known as an indirect, or 60-day, rollover. In these circumstances, you will need to complete the Pax World Rollover Conversion/Certification form. If you do not already have a Pax World IRA account, you will also need to complete a Traditional IRA & Roth IRA Application.
 
If the funds were paid directly to you, taxes from the distribution may have been withheld. This withholding could be subject to taxes and penalties, as it is considered part of the total dollar amount that was distributed to you. When you complete your rollover, you would need to make up the withholding from your own savings to avoid any taxes or penalties on the distribution.
 
You are only allowed one indirect rollover per 12-month period, so if you have already processed an indirect (60-day) rollover from one retirement account to another within a year, you may not be able to do another until 365 days have passed since that rollover was completed. There is no limit on transfers or direct rollovers (custodian-to-custodian).
 
When possible, a transfer/direct rollover is usually preferred. In general, as long as you roll over your retirement plan money within 60 days of receiving it, you will maintain the tax advantage.
 
Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money. You may obtain a prospectus and necessary forms by going to the “IRA & ESA Account Forms” page by choosing “Forms” in the menu above or request paper copies by calling 1(800) 767-1729.

You may return the completed forms to us by mail at: Pax World Funds, PO Box 9824, Providence, RI 02940-8024. The address for overnight delivery is Pax World Funds, 4400 Computer DR, Westborough, MA 01581-1722, telephone 1(800) 372-7827.

Investing For Children & Education
1
Does Pax World offer a college savings plan for my child/grandchild?

Pax World offers the Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA). There is no limit on the number of Coverdell ESAs that may be established for a designated beneficiary, however, in any given taxable year the total aggregate contributions to all the accounts for a particular designated beneficiary may not exceed $2,000.

An individual’s eligibility to contribute is based on modified adjusted gross income and tax filing status.

2
Can a minor open an account in the Funds?

A minor cannot have direct ownership of mutual fund shares but can own shares through a custodial account. The account is registered under the minor’s Social Security number, but the custodian has control of the account. Accounts for minor children may be established as:

  • Uniform Gift to Minor Act (UGMA) or Uniform Transfer to Minor Act (UTMA) Account. A UGMA/UTMA custodial account allows an adult to give a gift, such as mutual fund shares, to a minor. The custodian is responsible for conducting all transactions (i.e. buying, selling and exchanging shares) for the account until the minor reaches the age of majority.
  • A Traditional or Roth IRA for a minor who has earned income. A custodian controls the account until the minor reaches the age of majority.
3
What is the difference between an UGMA and an UTMA?

The UGMA (Uniform Gift to Minors Act) was created in 1956, the UTMA (Uniform Transfer to Minors Act) in 1986. Most states have now adopted the UTMA. Once a state adopts the UTMA, you can no longer establish an UGMA for a child living in that state. There are very few differences between UGMA and UTMA. The most significant are:

  • Age of majority: In most states, the child could take ownership of an UGMA account at age 18. For UTMAs, the age of majority is usually 21. Some states allow UTMA custodianship to extend to age 25.
  • Types of gifts: Only cash, mutual funds, securities, and insurance policies can be held in an UGMA. The UTMA is more flexible and allows almost any asset to be gifted to the minor.

Pax World sends quarterly statements. The last statement of each year will be an annual summary of all account activity from January 1 through December 31. In general, you also will receive a confirmation statement whenever you buy or sell shares.*

You may choose electronic delivery for your quarterly statements and transaction confirmations.
 
*Exceptions to the transaction confirmation rule: periodic plans, such as an Automatic Investment Plan or Systematic Withdrawal Plan, and capital gains/income reinvestments.

Can Pax World mailings be consolidated so that my household receives just one copy?

Will I receive a cost basis statement for shares sold?

Taxpayers are required to report the sale of non-retirement mutual fund shares on their individual income tax returns. Before 2012, mutual funds were only required to report the proceeds of fund share sales — not the actual gain or loss. Many funds, including Pax World, provided an average cost basis on certain eligible accounts as a service to shareholders, but this information was not reported to the IRS. *
 
Beginning in 2012, regulatory changes required that mutual funds track and report cost basis information to the IRS for fund shares purchased after January 1, 2012 (“covered shares”). The rule requires fund companies to report to the IRS the cost basis, proceeds and capital gain or loss realized on covered shares sold or exchanged in any taxable (non-retirement) account and any account owned by an S Corporation.
 
It is important to note that investors will still be solely responsible for calculating and reporting gains and losses realized on the sale of shares purchased prior to January 1, 2012 (“non-covered shares”). While Pax World will continue to provide an average cost basis for non-covered shares (when available) as a service, this reporting is not required and will not be reported to the IRS.
 
*Pax World is able to provide cost basis for non-covered shares only for accounts opened in 1994 or later. Pax World uses the “Average Cost Single-Category” method to calculate the cost basis of non-covered shares sold. You should check with your tax adviser to determine if this is the most suitable method for you. If your account was opened prior to 1994 (or if your account was opened by, or later received, a transfer of shares), we are not able to calculate cost basis for your non-covered shares. We can, however, provide you with any statement copies that you might need in order to calculate your cost basis. Please call our Investor Service Center at 1(800) 372-7827, Monday – Friday 8:00AM-4:30PM ET, to request statement copies.
