Updates to Your Retirement Savings Plan

The University of Pittsburgh is committed to offering you a retirement savings plan that will help provide the financial security during retirement you would like and deserve. 

The University has announced the roll-out of a new on-line Retirement Enrollment process through a sole recordkeeping system for its defined contribution plan. 

This transition will occur on Monday, February 9, 2015.  Little to no action will be required on your part during this transition.  You will continue to have access to invest in all of the TIAA-CREF and Vanguard funds that are available to you today.  Your current salary deferral agreement will continue without disruption.  This means that the percent of your salary you have elected to invest in the retirement plan will remain the same.  The investments you have chosen will also not change. 

Please check this site frequently during this transition.  New communications will be posted as they become available.
