Newsletter Delivery Preference

Communication with our members is a high priority for TIAA and we consider the TI Alumni News quarterly newsletter to be one of the benefits of TIAA membership. Several years ago, we offered members a "green" newsletter-delivery option, encouraging members to choose electronic instead of postal delivery. This helps the environment and saves printing and mailing costs. Over one-third of our members have chosen electronic delivery and they automatically receive notification when the online newsletter is available.  


New Texas Car Inspection/Registration Sticker

Starting March 1, 2015, Texas will implement a new car inspection/registration sticker program. In the future, Texans will need only one windshield sticker on our cars to indicate both vehicle inspection and registration. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has prepared an informative, easy-to-understand and entertaining video to explain the new program and special first-year transition rules.
