The TIAA retirement plan is a Defined Contribution Plan.  Retirement is contingent upon your individual elected investment returns.  For further information on the TIAA program, please refer to their website or contact TIAA directly at (800) 842-2776.  You can also contact the Coralville office at (319) 356‑8000 or toll-free (866) 842‑2977.

If you elect to participate in TIAA, you should complete a TIAA beneficiary designation online at the TIAA website.  At this site, you can learn about the investment options available and allocate your retirement funds between any of the multiple investment options.  If you do not make an investment selection, your funds will be automatically deposited into a lifecycle fund based on your expected year of retirement based on your age.

The TIAA office in Coralville offers services available to you in relation to retirement savings and personal financial planning. Therefore, you may request release time from work to schedule a visit to the TIAA Office in Coralville during normal business hours. You will be limited to one appointment per calendar year without using vacation, for a maximum of two hours.

You can schedule an appointment by phone or online.

You must work with your department in scheduling the appointment to balance the needs of the work area. If you prefer not to notify your supervisor of your intention to visit the TIAA Office or if you request additional appointments you must request the use of vacation time. If you consult with the TIAA representatives outside of your normal work hours, you are not eligible for additional compensation.

The financial services offered by TIAA are an important benefit to you and, therefore, the University feels it is important to facilitate reasonable access to these services.
