Retirement Fees

Understand Your Retirement Fees

All investment funds have fees for services associated with that particular fund that offset the amount of earnings applied to a participant’s account. Fees can vary among investment options due to risks and complexities of the fund’s investment strategy and the services provided to the plan. You can enhance your retirement savings by understanding how investment fund fees affect returns. Differences in fees and expenses may significantly change the amount in a retirement account over many years of savings.

A Department of Labor Notice is sent every August to all participants in the CURP and TDA Plans to provide information on these investment fund fees and assist participants in making meaningful comparisons of their investment alternatives. The Notice includes historical performance, comparable benchmark performance, shareholder-type fees, and expenses and investment restrictions.
