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.
