TIAA-CREF, the retirement account vendor used by Fermilab, recently informed the laboratory that files containing the first names, last names and e-mail addresses of some TIAA-CREF participants were accessed without authorization. TIAA-CREF uses Epsilon, the e-mail database company mentioned above, to send e-mails to its clients. Please note that TIAA-CREF customer account or financial information was NOT shared with Epsilon. Customer account information remains intact and secure.
Because of this, there is a chance you may receive unsolicited (spam) e-mails. As always, do not reply to e-mails asking for your personal information, account numbers or any other type of confidential information. TIAA-CREF will never ask for your personal information or login credentials in an e-mail.
