Why do we lock accounts?
After three consecutive invalid login attempts, online access to your account is locked for security purposes. We lock online access to prevent fraudulent activity and to make sure "robot" password programs aren't run on your account.

N/A indicates your balance is unavailable. This might be caused by one or more of the following:
- There is no balance to report for the current date or previous quarters.
- There is a pending transfer/rollover of funds into your contract from an external institution.
- A premium/account adjustment is being made internally. Our system is temporarily disabled from providing a current balance until the account is balanced.

When you access your online account, TIAA considers your login an open session, and stores a cookie to handle browser access to the secure site.
A cookie is a small amount of data which serves many functions; it can store login information including a username and password. Since the cookie is stored in your file system, simply closing the browser will not log you out of the system until the session times out. That happens 20 minutes after your last browser action.
Some organizations use "in memory cookies," which are stored in the browser’s memory. To effectively log out, you would have to close all open browsers. If all browser sessions are not closed, you could re-enter the site without having to log in again. TIAA doesn't operate this way. For this reason, you can log out of tiaa.org and continue to use all open browers.
