Unknown Costs of Healthcare in Retirement
One of the most significant costs for people in retirement is healthcare. Even those people in good health are going to have to pay for healthcare when they retire. For most people, even though they're aware that they're going to need to pay for their healthcare in retirement, they don't know what it's going to cost. Ohio DC can help your staff with figuring out what those costs might be. Send the link to our Healthcare Estimator Tool , to help them get an estimate of what those costs might be in the future.

Employees Are Looking for Your Help
Based on our own research through focus groups and the surveys we see from other financial organizations, we know that our participants are interested in saving money for retirement. We also know that they are aware that they need to improve their overall level of financial literacy. This is where many employees would like to see their employers take a more active role in helping them in this area.

According to a survey by the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, most workers like the idea of their employer automatically enrolling employees in a supplemental retirement savings plan, however only 22% of employers do so. If you would like to do more to help your employees save for retirement, call our service center or visit our website at Ohio457.org to see how Ohio DC can help.
