I'm wondering if now is a prudent time for me to move some (not all) of my CREF investments to the TIAA fixed. Once transferred, I can't move these monies back into CREF.

No! In fact, I'm doing the opposite (that is, moving funds from TIAA into CREF), primarily because of the limitations on getting funds liberated from TIAA.

If your CREF investments are well-diversified (along a number of dimensions), they will handle market turbulence. Plus, you already have a deep ballast in TIAA.

If anything, you might want to slowly move some funds OUT of TIAA rather than into it.
