We'll soon be adding two new benefits under our Prosperous You program for faculty and administrative employees*:
  • A new Roth option to the 403(b) Retirement Program and
  • A new TIAA mortgage discount program available through TIAA Direct.

See the April Illuminator for more information and watch for your home mailing on the Roth option (which includes a cover letter, fact sheet and enrollment form). If you want to know more now:

  • Take a look at the TIAA-CREF's Brainshark on the Roth option
  • Review the Mortgage Discount Program announcement
  • Attend an education session on the Roth option on May 13 or 20 from 12:30 to 1:30 at the College Club (Lunch will be provided by TIAA-CREF and you are welcome to bring a guest. Please RSVP to Ext. 3289.)
  • Talk to a TIAA-CREF representative by calling 1-800-732-8353 or going to www.tiaa-cref.org/schedulenow
  • Schedule an appointment with our certified financial planners by calling Ext. 3289

*The collective bargaining agreements require that new benefit programs be negotiated. Accordingly, extension of the Roth and mortgage benefits to bargaining unit employees will depend upon the outcome of those negotiations.

Special Session on Retiree Medical Options, Medicare and Social Security: May 12 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Wellesley College Club. Harvard Pilgrim's experts will host an educational seminar to review what Medicare and Social Security can provide and what medical plans are available at age 65. This session is open to all (whether you're about to retire or just beginning to think about it). Join us for information, discussion and dinner for yourself and a guest. Please RSVP to Ext. 3289.
