No. of Recommendations: 3

I have been waiting 12 days, and counting, for a piece of paper to make it 1.5 miles from the local TIAA-CREF office to my house so that I can authorize annual transfers from my TIAA into my CREF ... where I can invest it more or less as I wish in a broad array of funds, including some ultra-cheap, ultra-good Vanguard funds.

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

So I phoned the head TIAA-CREF wealth mgmnt guy in the state, and he is setting me up with another advisor, a more experienced one. He is also checking to find out where the breakdown in service occurred.

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.
