Note: Both TIAA-CREF and VALIC are annuity plans offered by the College to all full time employees.

As an employee you may participate in an employee only contribution to the Retirement Program through Supplemental Retirement Annuity (SRA). By participating in an SRA, employees can set aside tax-deferred (salary reduction) monies to save for retirement. Employees pay no taxes on their contribution and no taxes on earning until it is received as income.

To participate in an SRA, you must complete all necessary paperwork no later than the last working day of the month prior to the month in which you wish to start contributions.

Within the IRS limits you may enroll, end, increase, decrease, or suspend your contributions at any time

TIAA-CREF and/or VALIC offer participation in the SRA. For more information, please contact Personnel or Payroll.

For more information on TIAA and VALIC plan provisions, review the 403b Summary of Benefits.
