The current Savings Plus contract for administrative services with Nationwide Retirement Solutions expires at the end of the year. After a thorough proposal and evaluation process, Savings Plus awarded the new contract to Aon Hewitt effective January 2, 2013. This change brings exciting new features, cutting-edge technology, and interactive tools designed to make retirement planning easier.

At this time, employees are not required to take any action. Employees will receive a transition guide in the mail that will provide further information on the transition including key dates and action items.
