Proceeds Plus Through TIAA
Beneficiaries of proceeds under a TIAA life insurance policy may select from a number of different settlement options, including the "one sum" option, which provides the beneficiary the proceeds due in a single-sum payment. Under this option, claim amounts of less than $5,000 are issued by check from TIAA to the beneficiary for the amount due.
Claims of $5,000 or more will be handled through an interest-bearing Proceeds Plus account, established by TIAA in the name of the beneficiary. Upon settlement of the claim, the beneficiary will receive a Proceeds Plus checkbook, and may access the death benefit proceeds immediately by check. Checks may be written for any amount up to entire balance of the account.
