TIAA Safe Estate – Estate Planning

TIAA Safe Estate is a free interactive digital service where you can store your most important documents (e.g. birth certificate, wills, health proxy insurance policy.)  We often don't think about these things until we need to. But with TIAA Safe Estate, you can organize all your personal information and keep it secure until you and your loved ones need it.  Would your family know where to find the will?  Where do you store your tax records?  This service helps you to think about these things and gives you a way to organize it.
