DePaul's 403(b) Retirement Plan Transitions to Single Source Provider

In late July 2021, Fidelity Investments® became the single service provider for receiving contributions and providing plan services for the DePaul University 403(b) Retirement Plan. This means that all contributions to the Plan will now be made to accounts at Fidelity, including employee pre-tax deferrals as well as the University matching contributions. Additionally, all eligible custodial mutual funds moved from TIAA to Fidelity. All annuity holdings participants had with TIAA were retained by TIAA.

For details that were provided about this transition, visit www.myfidelitysite.com/depaul for detailed information about the change and resources to answer many of the questions you may have.
