1 TIAA-CREF Life Insurance Company (TIAA-CREF Life) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association (TIAA). TIAA-CREF Life’s ratings are provided as a result of its relationship with TIAA: A.M. Best (A++ as of 7/11), Fitch (AAA as of 2/12), Moody’s Investors Service (Aaa as of 12/11) and Standard & Poor’s (AA+ as of 8/11). There is no guarantee that current ratings will be maintained. Per S&P criteria, the downgrade of U.S. long-term government debt limits the highest rating of U.S. insurers to AA+ (the second-highest rating available).
