Safety and security
- The money accumulated in the account will earn guaranteed interest every day and is designed to not lose principal value, even in the most volatile markets.
- Guaranteed separate account assets are insulated from any potential claims made by TIAA's creditors and/or General Account policyholders.
- TIAA's $278.14 billion as of 12/31/20 General Account* provides additional protection in case the separate account's assets are insufficient to meet contractual guarantees.
