TIAA-CREF chairman, CEO, and president John Biggs said, "Our low fees are largely due to the fact that we are able to achieve economies of scale through sound investment management that is conducted 100% internally and as a result of the excellent asset growth that we've enjoyed."

Annual expenses for the other four investment options of the TIAA-CREF pension system remain the same. CREF Money Market and Social Choice Accounts, at 0.29%; CREF Bond Market, at 0.30%; and the CREF Inflation-Linked Bond Account, at 0.31%. There are no sales or transaction fees, and no maintenance charges on any TIAA-CREF investment option.
