The parties have reached a proposed settlement of the class action lawsuit captioned Bauer-Ramazani v. Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America – College Retirement and Equities Fund (TIAA-CREF) et al., Case No. 1:09-cv-190, pending in the United States District Court for the District of Vermont.

If you had an account with TIAA-CREF between August 17, 2003 and May 9, 2013 (the Class Period) and requested a transfer or distribution of funds held in a TIAA or CREF variable annuity account covered by ERISA, and those funds were not transferred or distributed within seven days of the date the account was valued and you were denied the investment gains, then the proposed settlement of this class action may affect your rights.  Please read the Notice of Proposed Class Action Settlement carefully.  The complete Settlement Agreement and certain court documents are available in the Court Documents section of this website.
