Optional Retirement - Employment Termination

If you leave the Research Foundation

The funds in your TIAA contracts continue to share in earnings/losses if you leave the RF, even if no additional contributions are made.


The same options you have available to you for changing your distribution of funds as an active employee remain unchanged.




Funds contributed to a GSRA during your employment with the RF will continue to be available to you for loans, subject to IRS regulations. No future contributions may be made to your GSRA unless you are employed by a TIAA participating institution or rehired by the RF.




No further contributions will be made to your TDA accounts under any circumstances.



At the time you terminate you also have access to your funds.
