CU doubles down on your retirement

CU's mandatory retirement plan helps you easily meet your retirement goals. You contribute 5% and CU contributes 10%.

If you’re enrolled in CU’s 401(a) Mandatory Retirement Plan, CU helps your savings grow with a generous contribution in addition to your annual salary. While you contribute 5% of your gross pay, CU contributes an amount equal to 10% of your gross pay.

This generous contribution allows you to automatically save the recommended 15% of your income for retirement. Even better: You are 100% vested in your account right away. 

Want to save more? CU offers three voluntary retirement savings plans open to all employees. Plus, you can meet with a TIAA financial consultant at no cost, as part of our retirement plan's services.

Take control of your retirement income by logging into your TIAA account to manage your investments and name your beneficiaries.

Eligibility: You must be in a benefits-eligible position, working 50% or greater time to be eligible.
