CSU TSA 403(b) Legacy Fund Balance Mapping

In an effort to reduce participant costs and improve the design and operation of the California State University Tax Sheltered Annuity (TSA) program, CSU will be implementing a transfer of asset balances currently held by the TSA legacy recordkeepers (Fidelity, MetLife, TIAA, VALIC, and Voya) to the active TSA Program administered by Fidelity. Balances held in legacy annuity contracts will not be affected by this transition. This is scheduled to take place at the end of May 2018.
