Plan Notices & Fee Disclosures

As plan changes or fund changes are introduced, and on an annual basis, the Office of Human Resources (HR) provides all employees with the required notices regarding any changes, fees and expenses in the DePaul University 403(b) retirement plan. These notices are intended to enable participants to better understand their benefits under the plan, inform them of current investment costs and provide an opportunity to review the merits of each of our plan vendors, Fidelity Investments and TIAA.
