Each September, members who have not retired from their Individual Account Program (IAP) can make a “Member Choice" election, which allows you to pick a Target-Date Fund (TDF) that better reflects your retirement savings goals or your personal risk tolerance. Learn more on the
IAP Target-Date Funds webpage.
Follow these steps to make your election in Online Member Services (OMS) from September 1-30.
Log into OMS. Please make sure you have OMS open in only one web browser or tab.

Important: Once you check the acceptance box and click Submit, your choice is irrevocable and cannot be canceled. You can only change your TDF once per calendar year. Your choice will remain in effect unless you make a new election during a subsequent year's election window.
