TIAA-CREF Data Security
Newsweek magazine recently published an article citing a TIAA-CREF data security breach last year.  TIAA-CREF has asked the Office of Human Resources to assure employees participating in the CUA retirement plan that it recognizes its responsibility to protect participants’ personal information.  TIAA-CREF investigated the matter thoroughly, put strict measures in place to further protect data, and notified all participants whose personal information may have been compromised. A TIAA-CREF letter addressed to all participants last December communicates the organization's commitment to data security. The letter can be found on the human resources Web site, For more information, call the Office of Human Resources at 202-319-5598.
