Corporate Announcements – October 2014

There are a number of corporate announcements in this edition of the company newsletter. See below for information on employment verification, a name change for the 401k plan, deleting old email addresses and the upcoming holiday schedule. If you have any questions about these announcements, please email Gerald Winkel (gwinkel@specialtyim.com) or Mary Jo Tomei (mtomei@specialtyim.com).

Employment Verification

Human Resources is receiving many verifications of employment (VOE) as homeowners are taking advantage of ongoing low mortgage interest rates. We usually turn them around the same day, but please allow up to 24 hours for processing. As a special note for our EPG associates, please keep in mind that we can only verify employment and income for EPG Media LLC, which started on 3/27/13. For prior information, you will have your lender send a separate VOE to Good Sam.

401k Name Change from ING to Voya

ING U.S. has changed its name to Voya Financial. All EPG employees should read this notice from ADP describing what that change means for you. Since SIM employees have their 401k through Transamerica, they will not be affected by this change.

Old Email Addresses No Longer Supported

Some SIM employees are still having email forwarded from their adamsbevgroup.com and m2media360.com email domains. Those will be shut down by the end of this year. Any employees who still receive regular email from those addresses should update third parties on their new addresses as soon as possible.

Holiday Furlough

As a reminder, both Friday, December 26 and Friday, January 2 are designated as furlough days. Therefore, the company will be closed on those dates to provide two four-day weekends over the holiday season. Employees may choose whether to work or vacation from December 29-31. As always, please check with your supervisor to ensure all deadlines and customer expectations are met.
