Online access to employer-owned accounts is provided by Vision®, a secure Web product offered by a Homestead Funds technology partner. Vision is not a Homestead Funds or National Rural Electric Cooperative Association site.
- Register online. Visit the DST Vision log–in page and select “Sign Up Now.” Each employee who requires access will need a unique ID, and employees must register individually. If you have any trouble, call 800.258.3030 and a representative will walk you through it.
- Send us your employer’s authorization.Download the Vision Access Authorization Letter below, provide the requested information, print it on your employer’s letterhead and mail or fax it to Homestead Funds (contact information is provided in the sample letter). A single letter can be sent to authorize access for multiple employees. However, each of these individuals must register online and each will receive a separate user ID and password.
- Log in to Vision. After your Vision access is approved, you will receive an email notification with a link to the DST Vision website.
Keep Your Vision ID and Password Confidential
Anyone who knows your Vision log-in information will be able to use Vision to view all accounts owned by the cooperative. For deferred compensation plan accounts, that includes every participant’s fund/account position and balance.
If You Forget Your Vision ID or Password
Visit the DST Vision log-in page and click “Trouble Logging in?” You will need to be able to answer the security question you provided at registration in order for this information to be emailed to you directly from Vision. Homestead Funds’ representatives are not able to look up your password.
If an Employee with Vision Access Rights Leaves
Your employer will need to contact Homestead Funds so we can block access. Often, employers modify the Vision Access Authorization Letter to cancel access for a previous employee while at the same time permitting access for a new employee. As long as each Vision user has registered separately, canceling a single user’s access can be done without disrupting access for any of the other authorized users.
