Pharmacy / Prescription Benefit Updates for July 1, 2013

UnitedHealthcare Pharmacy Benefit Updates for July 1, 2013.

Rep from TIAA-CREF will be on campus- april 10 & 17

A representative from TIAA-CREF will be on campus for individual counseling on Wednesday, April 10 and Wednesday, April 17.   Counseling sessions for both of these dates will take place in the Corson Hall Board Room.  The scheduling of appointments will be handled directly by TIAA-CREF.  To schedule an appointment, please call the Philadelphia Office at 800-842-2010.  Please let them know that you are from Ursinus College and the date/time of your desired meeting.  TIAA-CREF will schedule on a first-come first-serve basis.

These appointments are very popular and we expect the demand to exceed the availability. Please be respectful of your fellow employees when scheduling. These meetings are generally more beneficial for those close to or approaching retirement.  If you have a quick question or your time frame for retirement is still awhile away, you can get assistance by contacting the TIAA-CREF Counseling Center at 800-842-2776. They are available to address your questions and concerns M-F 8am-10pm and Sat, 9am-6pm.

Also, in an effort to provide plan specific information, TIAA-CREF has developed a microsite for Ursinus within their website.  This microsite will provide plan members with more information on the plans offered and investment options available with each plan, current performance of investment options and summary of their plan services and costs.  It also provides links to tools and calculators to assist you as you plan for your retirement goals.  You can access the microsite at
