App for Apple and Android Watch Provides Easy Access to Savings

TIAA launches updated app that offers quick accessibility to retirement savings at the touch of the wrist. 

TIAA, in an effort to provide retirement plan participants the latest account information, announced an updated app developed for Apple and Android smartwatches.

The app delivers access to total account balances across retirement savings, retirement health care, brokerage, bank, trust, mutual funds, life insurance, immediate annuities, after-tax annuities and assets held outside of TIAA.  

“Providing universal access for our customers is one of our top priorities,” says Scott Blandford, executive vice president and chief digital officer at TIAA. “Investing in mobile and wearable technologies helps ensure that our customers can stay connected to their financial picture anytime or anywhere.”

The app is compatible with all Android wear devices and Apple Watches that run watchOS 2 or a higher version. For more information about TIAA’s apps, visit
