TIAA-CREF Individual Retirement Counseling

ATTENTION:  Regular status employees 50-100% FTE


If you are currently participating in RCUH’s Group Retirement Annuity (GRA) and/or Supplemental Retirement Annuity (SRA) plans administered through TIAA-CREF OR if you are interested in enrolling into a TIAA-CREF SRA plan, the RCUH Human Resources Department is now coordinating one-hour Individual/Employee Retirement Counseling Sessions with TIAA-CREF.  During these meetings, you will be able to discuss your personal financial/retirement goals with a TIAA-CREF Financial Consultant, on a free and confidential basis.


A TIAA-CREF representative will be able to assist you with planning for your retirement goals, including:

  •      Setting realistic goals for key life events and retirement
  •      Reviewing your investment mix and strategy
  •      Selecting your TIAA-CREF options
  •      Learning about TIAA-CREF retirement income flexibility 

For employees unfamiliar with the SRA plan, it is considered a 403(b) tax-deferred annuity plan which allows an employee to make contributions via payroll deduction from his/her pre-tax earnings towards an individual retirement plan (i.e., SRA) through our third party administrator, TIAA-CREF.  Enrolling or making changes to your SRA election may be done at any time during the year. For more information about the GRA and SRA plans, please go to our website, and review the RCUH Retirement Plans Policy (3.560).
