Make Changes to Contribution Amounts & Investments
Review and make changes to contribution amounts
Contribution amount changes can be made at any time during the year. Northwestern utilizes NetBenefits, administered by Fidelity, to provide enhanced services for the Retirement Savings Plans offered to faculty and staff. All contribution amount changes, even if you contribute to TIAA, are made using this system.
There are two ways to make this change for those in both TIAA and/or Fidelity:
- Call NetBenefits at 800-343-0860 to speak with a representative;
- Update your contribution amount yourself via myHR. Call NetBenefits at 800-343-0860 for assistance with navigating the portal and maximizing your benefit. See this user guide on how to navigate the system.
