TIAA Individual Retirement Counseling Sessions at UH Hilo (June 13-15), UH Manoa (July 10-12)

ATTENTION:  Principal Investigators and all 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 OR if you are interested in enrolling in a SRA plan, the RCUH Human Resources Department is now coordinating one-hour Individual/Employee Retirement Counseling Sessions with TIAA.

We encourage all Principal Investigators to allow their employees to attend the TIAA Counseling Sessions if requested.  All employees must notify PIs if they would like to attend since sessions will be held during business hours. During these meetings, you will be able to discuss your personal financial/retirement goals with a TIAA Financial Consultant, on a free and confidential basis. The representative will be able to assist you with:

  • Setting realistic goals for key life events and retirement
  • Reviewing your investment mix and strategy
  • Selecting your TIAA options
  • Learning about TIAA 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 through our third-party administrator, TIAA.  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 review Policy 3.560 RCUH Retirement Plans.
