Supplemental Retirement Accounts Picture

Emeriti Health Account

The Emeriti Health Account, which is administered by TIAA-CREF, offers a tax advantaged way to accumulate assets to pay for health insurance premiums and other health care expenses for you and eligible family members after you retire.

If you are a full time employee age 40 or older, you will be automatically enrolled in an Emeriti Health Account and you will contribute $63.26 per month via pre-tax payroll deductions.  SMU will also make a $63.26 monthly contribution to your account, for up to 25 years.  Your contributions vest immediately and SMU’s contributions vest after seven years.  It is important that you contact TIAA-CREF to make your investment selections and provide dependent information.  

Your contributions, as well as SMU's contributions to your account, will increase periodically.
