I don't know how the Quicken-QIF-Gnucash path goes with securities, but 
Finance-Quote (the utility Gnucash uses to retrieve stock quotes) does 
retrieve quotes for the private pseudo-symbols used by the TIAA-CREF 
retirement funds. I've finally been able to track my wife's retirement 
totals and contributions with matches (and my new ones once I hit a 
year's service...).
