Basic Retirement - Allocations of Contributions

The RF contracts with TIAA-CREF to provide investment options and administer the benefits of the RF Basic Retirement plan.


When the waiting period is complete, contributions will automatically be sent to an age appropriate target retirement fund at TIAA-CREF.


You can read more about these funds and other funds offered as well as the applicable fees and restrictions by visiting


Once contributions begin, if you determine that the age appropriate target retirement fund is not the investment for you, you can change your allocation at any time by contacting TIAA-CREF directly at 1-800-842-2252 or  See Changes to Your Account for more information.


For information on investment funds available, refer to the Benefits Handbook.
