TIAA-CREF Life Insurance Company (TIAA-CREF Life) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association (TIAA).
* For its stability, claims-paying ability and overall financial strength, TIAA currently holds the highest possible ratings from the four leading insurance company rating agencies: A.M. Best (A++ as of 5/13), Fitch (AAA as of 1/14), Moody’s Investors Service (Aaa as of 1/14) and Standard & Poor’s (AA+ as of 6/13). Per S&P criteria, the downgrade of U.S. long-term government debt limits the highest rating of U.S. insurers to AA+ (the second-highest rating available). There is no guarantee that current ratings will be maintained. Ratings represent a company’s ability to meet policyholders’ obligations and do not apply to variable annuities, mutual funds or any other product or service not fully backed by TIAA’s claims paying ability.
Exclusions, restrictions, limitations, and reductions in benefits will, in certain situations, apply to your policy. For full details, including costs, call us at 877 276-9429.
