Fees and Expenses
Beginning January 1, 2012, participants who are no longer employed at PG&E but continue to have a balance in the Plan are assessed an administrative fee for as long as they keep an account in the Plan. This fee, which may increase in the future, currently is $53 per year ($13.25 per quarter). The fee will be deducted from your account at the beginning of each quarter and will be reflected on your quarterly statement. This fee applies only to employees who terminate their employment at PG&E but decide to maintain their RSP account. It will not apply to PG&E employees or retirees (employees who were age 55 or older at employment termination).
If you have an account in the Plan, and you select or execute the following service(s) or transaction(s), the fee(s) outlined below are deducted from your account. As you review this information, please keep in mind that fees are subject to change and that certain individual fees may not be deducted in some circumstances.
