The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your accumulation units or shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. Performance may reflect waivers or reimbursements of certain expenses. Absent these waivers or reimbursement arrangements, performance results would have been lower. Since Inception performance shown is cumulative for funds that have less than one year of performance history.
  1. Investment results shown here are after all applicable investment, administrative, and distribution expenses.
  2. Each business day, estimated unit values are usually posted between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., ET. Final unit values are usually posted between 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., ET. On days when stock trading is particularly active, the estimated unit values may be posted a little later, and the final unit values may be posted the following morning. If the net change and YTD return figures do not appear, the unit values you're looking at are preliminary estimates.
  3. Net change from the previous business day. Both the "Net Change" and "YTD Return" columns for variable annuities are only updated once final valuations have been performed; this usually occurs at approximately 10:00 p.m. ET.
  4. To see the inception date, gross expense ratio and other information, click on or hover over the account/fund's name.
  5. The performance shown for Class R2 that is prior to its inception date is based on the performance of the Account's Class R1. The performance for these periods has not been restated to reflect the lower expenses of Class R2. If these lower expenses had been reflected, the performance of Class R2 for these periods would have been higher.
  6. The Account's Class R1 began operations on April 29, 1994.
  7. The Account's Class R1 began operations on April 1, 1988.
  8. Effective October 1, 2016, the iMoneyNet Money Fund Averages - All Taxable peer group was changed to the iMoneyNet Money Fund Averages - All Government.
  9. Beginning July 16, 2009, TIAA withheld a portion of the distribution Rule 12b-1 and as necessary, administrative expenses for the Money Market Account. TIAA will end the voluntary withholding of expenses by April 14, 2017, and any amounts waived by TIAA within the three year period prior to termination of the waiver may be subject to recoupment by TIAA. TIAA may recover from the Account a portion of the amounts waived at such time as the Class's daily yield would be positive absent the effect of the waiver, and in such event the amount of recovery on any day will be approximately 25% of the class's yield (net of all expenses) on that day. As a result of the share class conversion on April 24, 2015, previously recoverable amounts have been allocated to the newly formed Classes. For more information on the pending termination of the voluntary waiver please see the Account's prospectus.
  10. The 7-day money market yield listed more closely reflects the current earnings of the money market annuity account than does the total return.
  11. You could lose money by investing in the CREF Money Market Account. Because the accumulation unit value of the Account will fluctuate, the value of your investment may increase or decrease. An investment in the Account is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Account's sponsor has no legal obligation to provide support to the Account, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Account at any time.
  12. The Account's Class R1 began operations on March 1, 1990.
  13. TIAA Stable Value is a guaranteed annuity contract issued by Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association (TIAA), New York, NY 10017. Contributions from different plans are pooled together and deposited in a non-unitized pooled separate account to TIAA. This guaranteed annuity contract is not considered to be an "investment" or "security" under federal securities laws. In addition, the contract provides a guaranteed minimum rate of interest of between 1% and 3% (before deductions for contract fees). Contract fees are described in the annuity contract and are collected on a daily basis. Payment obligations and the fulfillment of the guarantees provided for in the contract in the accumulation phase are supported by the assets in the separate account. If the assets in the separate account are insufficient to meet these obligations, the shortfall is supported by the General Account of TIAA and is therefore subject to TIAA's claims-paying ability. Lifetime annuity payments are provided by TIAA, are subject to TIAA's claims-paying ability, and are not supported by the assets in the separate account. Past interest rates are not indicative of future interest rates.  This product is not a mutual fund, variable annuity or bank product. The obligations of TIAA are not insured by the FDIC or any other federal governmental agency.

    As provided for in the annuity contract, restrictions may apply to certain plan sponsor and/or participant initiated transactions. Please refer to the annuity contract or certificate for further details.

    The TIAA Stable Value minimum guaranteed rate is subject to change every six months; for the second half of 2013, it is 1.00%.
  14. The TIAA Stable Value Inception Date represents the date that the plan's TIAA Stable Value record was initiated on TIAA-CREF's recordkeeping system which may be earlier than the date of the first deposit to the contract. "Since Inception" performance is calculated from this date.
  15. Total return includes the reinvestment of all dividends and any capital gains distribution.
  16. Daily performance data shown above is from Interactive Data CorporationTM, and is updated at approximately 7 a.m. each morning. Month-end performance data is provided by MorningstarTM, and is updated approximately 10 days after month-end. Returns may differ slightly from those provided by fund families themselves.
  17. Accumulations in mutual funds not managed by TIAA-CREF may be subject to administrative charges. These charges are subject to change. Please review current documents related to your plan.
  18. The net expense ratio reflects total annual fund operating expenses excluding interest expense. If interest expense was included, returns would have been lower.
Annuities are designed for retirement savings or for other long-term goals. They offer several payment options, including lifetime income. Payments from CREF and TIAA variable annuities are not guaranteed, and the payment amounts will rise or fall depending on investment returns.
