Actually, I can (and do) invest in Vanguard funds through TIAA-CREF at Vanguard's institutional rate, which is unbeatably low. And that's what I want to shift more of the TIAA allocation into.

Update: The transfer-funds paperwork was a no-show in the mail again today. So I spoke with the head guy in the state and he is setting me up with another advisor. He is also checking to find out why it has taken 12 days (and counting) for a piece of paper to make its way 1.5 miles from the TIAA office to my house.

Geez, scan it and email me a .pdf maybe? What year is this?

I will give them one more chance to do this right. More and more, I am thinking that if I got this far under my own steam, I may be best served by just sticking to that.
