Planning for retirement can be daunting for employees… from decisions about company plans, to Social Security to Medicare, the process has steps and important deadlines that can’t be missed.

ROC helped ITW create the Retirement Planning Guide: a one-stop-shop for information about retirement income and health care options.
The Guide opens with visual timelines outlining the key steps employees must take before/after their retirement date, addresses commonly asked questions from employees, and gives actionable information on the company-provided plans.
Employees with at least ten years of service receive a copy of the Guide when they turn age 55. Plus, the Guide is available on ITW’s internal portal.
