TIAA-CREF, Vanguard consultants available to discuss retirement options

TIAA-CREF and Vanguard consultants are available for a total of seven or more days every month from January-November to meet with University employees one-on-one for a 30-minute session free of charge.

At the appointment, employees may review and discuss their individual investment allocation and balance in the retirement savings plan accounts; how to maximize their accumulated savings; how to choose the right investment funds; how to invest during any market; whether they have saved enough for retiree health insurance; how to prepare for retirement; and more.

“Retirement and investment planning are very personal topics, and that’s why we’re providing this valuable individual service,” said Thomas W. Lauman, director of benefits in the Office of Human Resources.
