Primary Information

    This type of letter is sent out by the Social Security Administration because the separated employee either filed a claim for social security benefits and/or is turning 65. The letter states that the separated employee “may” have retirement benefits from Tufts University. We get calls like this on a somewhat frequent basis. Most likely what happened is the separated employee already rolled over any money that they had in a Tufts University Retirement Fund with Fidelity or Tiaa. It is up to the separated employee to reach out to the vendor to find out if they still or ever had money with them.

    Tufts does not need to be involved unless a separated employee has money and wants to make a distribution.  If that is the case, please follow the standard protocol of sending completed paperwork to the Benefits Office.  Additionally, more information can be found directly from the US Department of Labor.
