Transition to Single Recordkeeper

Starting on March 26, 2020, the CMU Retirement Plans — the Faculty and Staff Retirement Plan (FSRP) and the 401(k) Plan — will all be administered by TIAA, and TIAA will become the single recordkeeper for the plans. Note that university contribution rates, eligibility and vesting requirements will remain the same.
