TIAA 2017 Fee Disclosure Email

tiaa_logo

 

TIAA delivered important information about your retirement plan(s) via email on Saturday, August 5, 2017 and we were recently informed that the message may have been diverted to your Clutter box. As you may already know, with Clutter, the email server keeps track of the email you read and the ones you don’t. Once you turn it on,  as new email comes in, it takes messages you’re most likely to ignore and puts them into the “Clutter” folder. In order to efficiently provide employees with accurate and up-to-date information and to remain compliant with our annual participant fee disclosure responsibilities regulated by the Department of Labor, we ask that you follow the following steps:

  1. You can turn Clutter off (or)
  2. You can “train” clutter that TIAA emails are not clutter.

To “train” your Clutter, look in the Clutter folder and drag the TIAA email from your Clutter folder to your Inbox. Moving an email in or out of the Clutter folder from any of your devices is enough to give the signal to the Clutter system that an item from TIAA is or isn’t Clutter.

August EFAP News: Parenting School-Aged Children

Parents As Teachers

As a parent, your children are always learning from you-both consciously and subconsciously. You work to ensure their wellbeing, and below are some simple strategies you can use to further set them up for success:

Encourage curiosity.

Allow kids to explore, ask questions, conduct experiments…etc. This will help to keep their minds active and show them there’s always more than one way to look at something.

Take advantage of “teachable moments.”

Whether you’re at the grocery store, on the road, or cooking dinner, you can use these opportunities to show children how what they’re learning in the classroom translates to the “real” world!

Cultivate creativity. Encourage kids to use their imagination and think “outside the box.” For younger children, blocks, art supplies, and items for pretend play will enhance creative skills as well.

Promote problem solving. Give children opportunities to come up with solutions for themselves. Try to let them decide which strategy they will use and give them choices instead of directions (as age-appropriate).

Model healthy habits.

Involve your child in finding ways to incorporate more whole foods. Promote fun activities that get the whole family moving, and encourage hydrating with water instead of sugary drinks. Talk to children about healthy ways to manage stress and the importance of getting enough sleep. Developing these habits early on helps lead to a lifetime of good health.

Attend the webinar.

This month be sure to register and attend the webinar, “Highs and Lows of Back to School.” Learn how to be a supportive parent to your school-aged children at this hectic time of year. A full description and registration information is listed.
