If you meet the eligibility requirements1 for a TIAA-CREF Investment Solutions IRA, you have access to the full range of TIAA-CREF annuities and mutual funds that make up our retirement investment lineup. This includes the popular TIAA Traditional Annuity, TIAA real estate account, and our Lifecycle funds, which create one of the widest arrays of investment choices in the industry. You’ll also have access to a brokerage account for stocks, bonds, ETFs, CDs and more.2

With an Investment Solutions IRA, you can:

  • Create guaranteed income for life3 – choosing lifetime income for a portion of your savings when you retire helps relieve the worry about outliving your retirement income.
  • Earn a competitive guaranteed rate both while you are saving and during retirement.
  • Let your investment mix adjust automatically with Lifecycle funds, going from more aggressive to more conservative as your retirement date nears.4
  • Take advantage of TIAA-CREF's advice and guidance.
  • Reduce your expenses – the Investment Solutions IRA comes with no fees or maintenance expenses, which means more of your money goes to work for you. Brokerage transaction fees may apply. Investors are subject to the underlying funds' portfolio management fees and expenses. You should evaluate all fees and expenses when making an investment decision.
  • Have access to thousands of non-TIAA-CREF mutual funds, stocks, bonds, FDIC-insured certificates of deposit (CDs) and more.2
