Plan Sponsors

Plan Sponsor Services

From analysis of an effective plan type and structure, to the implementation of products and services to enhance your plan, and everything in between to keep it compliant and competitive — you’ll gain confidence and efficiency with a strong team, comprehensive services and fiduciary support.

Client Support

Our experienced client service team members will work with you, your plan advisors, and other members of the TIAA-CREF support team to design and administer a retirement plan that:

  • Provides your employees with the opportunity to generate income in retirement that is sufficient to support their current standard of living
  • Manages your risk as a plan fiduciary
  • Manages your plan costs

Once implemented, your team focuses on ongoing plan health. Plan costs, participant data, and administrative efficiency are in continual review to ensure your plan is operating at its best and remains focused on your stated goals and the needs of your participants. We'll provide guidance on benefits policy strategies, investment policy and selection, review and analysis of peer group data, benefits statistics and trends in participation to target areas of your plan that need improvement.

Ongoing plan management, monitoring and reporting is simplified with our comprehensive plan sponsor website. Here you have secure access to:

  • Manage participant contributions and enrollments
  • Monitor plan and participant data and investments
  • Leverage robust plan and participant information and flexible reporting capabilities for detailed plan analysis

The site is also packed with a wide range of tools, resources, guidance and support to help you understand and manage your responsibilities as a plan sponsor, increase your efficiency in meeting them, and mitigate your risk.

Fiduciary & Compliance Services

Understanding and meeting your fiduciary obligations is a requirement for ERISA plans and is recognized as a best practice for non-ERISA plans. And, all plans must comply with IRS regulations. Whether working on your own or with the support of an advisor, TIAA-CREF offers a suite of services that can assist you in managing ever-increasing regulatory demands — allowing you to stay focused on maintaining a competitive plan that helps your participants plan for their financial well-being.  More…
