The TIAA 2018 United Way campaign began April 9 and continues through April 25, with Dallas-area TIAA members doing their part to get involved and help their fellow North Texans.

OneExchange, the service TI retirees use to gain post-65 health insurance coverage and/or manage RRA reimbursements, has officially changed its name to Via Benefits.
The new brand name was chosen to emphasize the service the company provides in helping retirees gain coverage that suits their needs. The word via literally means “traveling through a place to a destination.”

Their building was finished in 1992, has 17 floors and contains a vault full of money that is loaned to other banks in the 11th district. This area includes parts of southern New Mexico, Texas and upper Louisiana which explains why, when Houston called right after Hurricane Harvey and said "We need $500M", Dallas could say "Send the armored truck tomorrow -- it will be ready."

On the morning of November 14, five TIAA volunteers gathered to work a service project for Readers2Leaders located in west Dallas. Readers2Leaders develops and grows the reading skills of underserved Dallas children ages 3 through 12 so that they succeed in school and graduate prepared to live productive lives. Their programs include after school reading tutorials, help on homework and hands-on activities. Also, a summer camp is offered to improve young children’s reading skills and to experience fun field trips to keep them active when school is not in session.
Hope you were one of the 480 folks who didn't miss this year’s action-packed TI retiree luncheon at the Mesquite Convention Center. It featured a wonderful panel of TI engineers from the TI New Employee Initiative (NEI)! The panel shared insights about their careers, new technologies and product innovations that will shape the future of TI. The “Next Generation of TI Innovation” event was hosted by Jared Miller, product development engineer and chair of the TI NEI. After the innovation panel, there was a brief update on TI’s recent financial results.
