In addition to the investment fund lineup above, you can setup a Self-Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA).  The SDBA is available for employees who prefer to invest independently and have access to hundreds of publically traded mutual funds.  While there is not a fee to establish an account, individual funds may have transaction fees (buy and sell) as well as other fees and minimum contribution amounts.  The SDBA does have an option to view only no fee funds. We encourage anyone interested in setting up a SDBA to meet with a TIAA-CREF counselor. 

Particpants in the plan should maintain their ID and password information in a secure manner. Participants should also review confirmation letters and statements from the TIAA-CREF in a timely manner for accuracy and completeness.
