Difference between "CREF Equity Index" and "TIAA-CREF Equity Index" (TCEIX)

I can participate in my employer's retirement investment plan and
invest on a bunch of funds under so-called "TIAA-CREF Variable Annuity
Accounts". One option is "CREF Equity Index". I went to
morningstar.com, and found "TIAA-CREF Equity Index" (TCEIX).
Originally I thought they were the same thing, but later on I realized
they are not. Can any of you educate me what the difference is between
them? Is it possible for me to find data for "CREF Equity Index" from
morningstar.com? Thanks a lot in advance!

TIAA-CREF has provided retirement plans for educational and research
institutions for about 80 years. In addition, TIAA-CREF started offer
mutual funds to the general public a few years and these funds are
tracked by Morningstar. If you go to TIAA-CREF's website
http://www.tiaa-cref.org you can get a good explanation on the
retirement plans offered through employers and individual plans.
They also list a section on performance with links for Morningstar
ratings under both employer plans and individual plans at:
