If you had another fund(s) that you were really interested in, it may be possible to transfer your TIAA-CREF money to a 403(b)(7) account in your other fund (provided the other fund offers 403(b)(7) accounts, and provided the money in your TIAA-CREF account does not include any employer contributions).

Correction: having employer contributions in your account does not automatically preclude the 403(b)(7) option--it gives the employer the chance to preclude it, and my guess is that most have done so, as that is how TIAA-CREF would prefer and recommend that the plans be set up. (Not to just speak ill of TIAA-CREF, which is a very good 403b provider in many respects--performance and service--but in my experience as a participant and plan administrator they don't like to give or publicize options that might result in participants taking their money out of TIAA-CREF.)
