Ohio DC provides a lot of education to our participants, but we would like to give employers the opportunity to hear what we have to say as well. For that reason, we developed an Employer Webinar to address the topics: Closing the Retirement Gap, Relationship Between Financial Stress and Productivity, Employer Engagement Matters, and Resources Available from Ohio DC. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions and get immediate feedback. Sign up for the webinar here, which will take place from 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM on May 10th.

Help Your Employees Opt-in
It's not new for us to hear from long-time public employees who say, "I wish someone had told me years ago about Ohio Deferred Compensation, so I could have started saving earlier."
This is something we're working hard to fix. One way to ensure people know about Ohio DC if for you to require newly hired employees to complete a simple form to opt-in or out of the Ohio DC Program. This process assures that they're aware of the benefits of Ohio DC. If you don't already, we encourage you to consider adopting the same practice by using the Opt-in Enrollment Form.
All new employees learn about
tax-deferred savingfor retirement early in their career.
The form will help you document that you (as the employer) have met
your fiduciary responsibilityto educate your employees on their retirement benefits.
