There is no process to enroll in the Emeriti Plan. Once you become eligible for the Emeriti plan you will be automatically enrolled and contributions will be made on your behalf. If you decide to make voluntary contributions to the Emeriti program please contact the benefits office to arrange for payroll deduction to the plan. Initial contributions will be directed to an age appropriate TIAA-CREF Lifecycle Mutual Fund (the fund closest to the year you will turn age 65) but you have the option to change your allocation or transfer funds at any time.
