FAQs about your TIAA accounts

  1. Go to tiaa.org.

IMPORTANT! There’s one final step to complete your registration. At the bottom of the “Welcome” page, select Log in. For security reasons, this one time only, you’ll be asked a few questions to verify your identity.
Please note that you’ll need your Social Security number to complete your registration.

Once you’ve completed the identity verification steps, you’re all set to manage your TIAA accounts online.

Going forward, just log into your account at tiaa.org.
