David was correct that I was looking in /opt/local for my since that showed up in spotlight, and the one that was being used was actually in /Library/Perl/blah/blah/blah and when I got the new version from Mike installed everything worked. I really appreciate the patience with my complete noobisity, and I have made some notes to help get this fixed when Tiaa-Cref decides to change their website address again which they seem to do on an annoyingly regular basis. Anyway, thanks so much for your patient help. I was about to deselect updates for tiaacref out of shear frustration and this has been a huge help.

These patches add about 70 more funds to the list of funds the module can retrieve. Maybe these patches will become part of the distribution someday.  In the meantime I've attached my version to
