Available Mutual Funds
Further investment options are offered through an arrangement between Further, the account administrator, and the Charles Schwab Trust Company, the sub-custodian for the investment accounts. Investment accounts are self-directed and self-managed. You choose where to invest, when, and how much.
Basic Investment Account
When your account Base Balance exceeds $1,000, you have the option to activate a Basic Investment Account. This account gives you access to mutual funds from Schwab. You also have access to online resources and tools through the Further investment site.
Investment accounts are self-directed and self-managed
Investment accounts are self-directed and self-managed. This means you decide whether and when to invest, select the mutual funds you'd like to invest in (see the link to the funds list at the top of the page), and decide how much to invest. If you need help with this process, you have access to online resources and tools through the Schwab site accessible from your VEBA account at www.hellofurther.com.
If you choose to invest money beyond $1,000 from your VEBA into a basic investment account, you'll be responsible for an $18 fee per account per year deducted annually from your Basic Investment Account and is only deducted when the Basic Investment Account has a balance.
