To Participants and Beneficiaries of the Lehigh University Retirement Program for Faculty and Staff (PN001)

This report highlights important information about the plan.  While some of this information may appear to duplicate information previously communicated to you, the Internal Revenue Service and U.S. Department of Labor requires that an annual report in this format be given to all employees.

The information used in this summary annual report has been taken from the detailed Annual Report for the plan filed with the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration under employer identification number 24-0795445, for the 2012 plan year.  This report has been filed in accordance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).

Basic Financial Statement

Benefits under the plan are provided by individually owned, fully vested, annuity or mutual fund contracts issued by Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association and College Retirement Equities Fund (TIAA-CREF). The total premiums paid for the plan year were $12,224,575.

Your Rights to Additional Information
