Workplace Benefits During Job Transitions and Retirement
Leaving a job, no matter what the reason, is a time of emotional turmoil and disruption. Sometimes these transitions are planned, such as getting a better job at another employer. In some cases, the transition will be unplanned, such as having your job eliminated or moved. During these transitions it’s very important to understand what the options are for your workplace benefits. Employers make some benefits portable and employees need to know what to sign up for and what to skip. You should be talking with your financial advisor during times of transition to get the advice you need on this complex topic.
