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.
