CONCERNS ABOUT TIAA-CREF: In view of the tragic events on Sept. 11, several employees have expressed a concern about TIAA-CREF. The offices of TIAA-CREF were not physically harmed by the destruction at the World Trade Center. There are two other major service centers - Denver, CO and Charlotte, NC. Either, or both, of these centers could step in and provide services should something happen to the New York office. In addition, TIAA-CREF has a disaster response plan that includes backup systems in a number of different locations across the country. The response plan was put to the test on Sept. 11 and passed with flying colors.
