Health Care Costs in Retirement
As people prepare for retirement, some of their most significant concerns are related to how they will afford health care once they are retired. According to a recent survey , almost half of Americans between the ages of 50 and 64 are afraid they won't be able to afford health care in retirement.

Ohio DC is here to help our participants save money for retirement, which they can use for anything, including health-care expenses. If you direct your employees to the Calculators/Tools tab on our website, they can use the My Health Care Estimator tool to calculate potential future health-care expenses to help them plan for retirement.
