Employees Can Rollover Sick and Vacation Time
As an employer, you have the opportunity to be an influential resource in your employee's retirement savings journey. Just reminding them that they have access to benefits like Ohio Deferred Compensation can help keep them moving in the right direction, or encourage them to get started saving for a secure retirement. Don't let them pass up the opportunity to save additional money when presented with the chance to rollover sick and vacation time into their Ohio DC account.

Many employers allow their staff to cash out unused sick leave and vacation time, either periodically or when they retire. If you're one of those employers, encourage your staff to invest that money in their future, rather than spending it on something spur of the moment that they'll soon forget. If you would like to help your staff learn how to invest their unused leave, you can send them  here .


Ohio DC's mission is to help your employees prepare for a secure retirement. If you'd like to learn more about what we can do to help, visit Ohio457.org or call your local Account Executive or our Service Center at 877.644.6457 to schedule an appointment.
