Improvements to TIAA-CREF Statements on July 1
TIAA-CREF will begin issuing enhanced quarterly statements with an improved design and additional information to track investment progress more easily.

New statements will include:

  • Personalized Rates of Return for the current quarter and year-to-date. 
  • Retirement Income Projections so account holders can see (based on certain assumptions) what they could be receiving monthly at retirement as well as what the difference would be if they saved even more. 
  • Plan-Based Reporting so account holders can see information from all employer-sponsored plans.

Employees enrolled in TIAA-CREF will be receiving a "How to Read" guide with new statements. For more information, call the counseling center at TIAA-CREF at 800-842-2776.

New Tax Withholding Tables
The new 2009 withholding tables issued to implement The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA’s Making Work Pay Credit) may place some employees in a slightly “under withheld” situation by year-end. 
In particular, the following people may be affected:

  • Married couples with both spouses earning wages
  • Individuals working multiple jobs at one time
  • Anyone who may be claimed as a dependent on another person’s return
  • People receiving income from a pension
  • Individuals receiving Economic Recovery Payments

The Internal Revenue Service’s online Withholding Calculator has been updated to reflect the impact of the Making Work Pay Credit. Anyone who thinks they may be at risk of under withholding may wish to use this calculator and then file a new W-4 form. For more information, visit: Publication 15-T at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p15t.pdf, or the Making Work Pay Tax Credit and IRS Withholding Calculator at www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96196,00.html, or contact the Office of Payroll at 202-319-5512.
