Retirement Savings


GW offers two primary retirement savings plans:

  • The 403(b) Plan for employee contributions 
  • The 401(a) Plan for university base and match contributions

Employees can choose to invest their contributions with two retirement providers, Fidelity Investments and TIAA. You are in control of your future - changes to your contribution rates, retirement investments and retirement providers can be made at anytime of the year.

Please note: Investment values will fluctuate so that an investor's units, when withdrawn, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Retirement Counseling

Retirement consultants from Fidelity and TIAA are available several days each month to meet with GW employees to discuss their retirement savings goals and learn more about the plans.
