Results for Retirement Planning

Create your retirement budget

Some expenses will likely go down after you retire, such as clothing or restaurant meals. Others might increase, such as hobbies, travel and health care expenses. That’s why it’s important to have a budget so that you’ll know if your retirement income sources will be enough to cover your anticipated expenses. There are a number of helpful budget planning resources online. These resources can help you identify the types of anticipated expenses that should be included, such as retiree health care coverage costs. You can find these resources online using your preferred search engine and searching these terms: “retirement,” “planning” and “budget”.

Seek financial advice for retirement

You have some important choices to make before you retire. Trusted investment advisors, tax specialists or attorneys can help you make decisions that are best for you and your financial situation. To give your financial advisors a better idea of the retirement benefits you get from Rockwell Automation, it’s a good idea to share your important benefits-related documents with them, such as:

  • The Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs) for your retirement benefits (Pension Plan, Retirement Savings Plan and Retiree Medical)
  • Your most recent benefits statements (Pension Plan benefit estimate from Your Benefits ResourcesTM through EmployeeConnect or the RASC and Retirement Savings Plan account statements from Fidelity)
  • Your beneficiary designations (from Your Benefits ResourcesTM through EmployeeConnect and Fidelity)
  • Your Guide to a Hassle-Free Retirement

You can download copies of your SPDs and Your Guide to a Hassle-Free Retirement by going to the Your Benefits ResourcesTM home page from EmployeeConnect, or you can request copies be sent to you by calling the RASC.
