I completely agree with jtmitch. I actually moved one of my IRA's from Vanguard to TIAA-CREF. My DW is a TIAA participant, so I have had a chance to see TIAA up close. While the cost of my TIAA IRA is a very few basis points higher than Vanguard, for future income distribution purposes, my DW and I decided that TIAA's extensive variety of income distribution options would suit us better, at least for that one IRA, combined with her TIAA-CREF accounts.

On the other hand, I also still have an IRA containing both Vanguard Index 500 and Growth Index funds in it. The very low cost is hard to beat, even compared to TIAA. IMO, you cannot go wrong with either choice. Good Luck. NowInMaui
