Enroll in the UofL retirement Plan

University of Louisville has selected Fidelity Investments to provide expanded services that will make enrolling and managing your retirement savings plan easier. Whether you choose to enroll with Fidelity, TIAA-CREF, or both, you will first access an enrollment site (NetBenefitsĀ®) managed by Fidelity.

At the Fidelity NetBenefitsSM site, you can enroll in the University of Louisville 403(b) Plan, change providers, make or change payroll deduction amounts, and choose your investment options with Fidelity. To choose investment options with TIAA-CREF, you need to access TIAA-CREF's website.

Steps to Enroll in the Plan

To enroll for the first time in the University of Louisville 403(b) Plan, follow the steps below. (Remember, regardless of whether you are enrolling with Fidelity, TIAA-CREF, or both, you will first access an enrollment site managed by Fidelity.)

  1. Contact HR Retirement Adminsitrator Kathy Hite at 502-852-3555 or kathy.hite@louisville.edu  to set up shell account.

  4. When you enroll for the first time, Fidelity will prompt you to provide your Social Security number.  You will be able to:

    • set the retirement provider(s) (Fidelity and/or TIAA-CREF) to manage your contributions
    • set up investment options for your Fidelity-managed account (a separate link is provided within NetBenefits to set up your TIAA-CREF investment options)
