American University Retirement Plan
American University is committed to providing you with retirement savings opportunities to help you plan and achieve the retirement you want.
AU offers diversified investment options through two investment service providers: Fidelity and TIAA. Both Fidelity and TIAA include funds from multiple fund companies and you may choose to invest with either or both service provider.
We have divided the Plan into four tiers to satisfy varying levels of desired involvement in allocating retirement dollars. Tier 1 includes all-in-one investments that may be more appropriate for individuals who want a diversified investment approach in a single fund. Tiers 2 & 3 may be more appropriate for those who want a more active role in determining how they want their retirement dollars allocated. For those desiring the most investment flexibility and choice, Tier 4 offers a self-directed brokerage option, which gives you access to an extended range of mutual funds. These tiers and the investment options are described in more detail below.
