RCUH HR URGENT – RCUH COVID-19 Advisory #12 – Implementation of the Emergency Proclamation

To: Principal Investigators & RCUH Employees

This advisory is intended to provide guidance to Principal Investigators and RCUH Employees on the RCUH’s implementation of Governor David Ige’s August 5, 2021 Emergency Proclamation, which requires all State and County employees to be fully vaccinated or undergo weekly tests for COVID-19, effective August 16, 2021.

RCUH INFO ONLY- August 17-19: TIAA Individual GRA/SRA Advisory Sessions (Virtual Meetings)

ATTENTION:  Principal Investigators & Regular-Status employees at 50-100% FTE

RCUH is now coordinating one-hour Individual/Employee Retirement (GRA/SRA) Plan Advisory Sessions with TIAA via virtual meetings August 17-19. Regardless of your current status – whether you are a long-time employee, just hired, or somewhere in between – it is never too early or too late to consider retirement planning. During these personalized sessions, you will be able to discuss your personal financial/retirement goals with a TIAA Financial Consultant on a free and confidential basis.

Because these sessions are being held during normal business hours, all employees must notify their PIs and supervisors if they would like to attend. We encourage Principal Investigators to allow their employees to attend the TIAA Advisory Sessions, if requested. 

For employees unfamiliar with the SRA (Supplemental Retirement Annuity) plan, please note that unlike the GRA (Group Retirement Annuity) plan, there is no 12-month waiting period and you may enroll or make changes to your election at any time during the year. The SRA plan with TIAA 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 over and above the amount being accumulated under the RCUH basic retirement plan (GRA). 

For more information about the GRA and SRA plans, please review Policy 3.560 RCUH Retirement Plans.

We have reserved the following dates and times for individual sessions:
