TIAA-CREF to Help Clients Draft 403(b) Documents

June 12, 2008 ( - TIAA-CREF says it is now ready to help clients prepare written plan documents newly required for some 403(b) plans.

A news release said the service will be provided free to TIAA-CREF’s 403(b) clients. The organization will work with Ascensus to prepare the necessary documents that incorporate TIAA-CREF annuity contracts and mutual funds into plans.

The plan document service will help sponsors of both annuity and custodial account-based plans. A plan that uses funding vehicles from other vendors will need the help of a lawyer to add the features of those options to the documents.

Plan administrators who wish to learn more about these resources can contact their TIAA-CREF Managing Consultant or call 1-888-842-7782.
