The Retirement Committee regularly reviews the investment options available in the retirement plan. Recently the committee, upon the recommendation of our investment consultant, made some changes to the investments available in our retirement and Emeriti plans. The changes were made to address fees and volatility issues:

The Target Date Funds will move from Lifecycle Funds to Lifecycle Index funds. This change has a similar investment strategy, but by indexing the approach allows us to further lower cost. This same change will be made in the Emeriti investment options.

Wasatch Small-Cap Growth equity option in Tier 3 will be replaced with Conestoga Small Cap Institutional; TIAA-CREF Large Cap Value Premier equity option in Tier 3 will be replaced with MFS Value R6.

If you are invested in one of the options that are changing you should have received a notice directly from TIAA. The updated fund lineup by tiers is posted on the benefits website at:… and you can request a copy from Laurie Mozingo:; (719) 389-6422)

July is the new fiscal year and benefit changes take effect this month. Please take a look at your July pay stubs to ensure that your pay, benefit, and tax deductions are correct! If you are on deferred pay your pay increase won’t show up until your September payroll but any benefit changes you made during open enrollment should be on this check! The best way to see these is in Banner (SSB) under Employee Tab/Pay Information/Pay Stub.

Please note that when you are newly eligible for the mandatory defined contribution retirement plan (benefits-eligible, age 29 and 1 year of service) and/or the long-term disability plan (benefits-eligible and 1 year of service) these contributions and premiums will automatically be deducted from your pay.
