Read carefully the choices that you have when you are making an estimate. Understand that the system is making a lot of calculations and it will take it a few minutes to generate the estimate that you requested. Once the calculation is complete the estimate will appear in the Documents tab as a PDF and you can go and open it there. Estimates are just that and the ones calculated through Member Self-Service will not be signed or validated by the Fund. For an “official” estimate participants must still write to the fund.
