09/11/13 Most U.S. Employees Likely to See Changes When Enrolling in Health Benefits This Year, Says Aon Hewitt
Workers Should Read the Fine Print and Take an Active Role in the Enrollment Process  Workers who plan to automatically default into the same health plan in which they were enrolled the previous year would be wise to rethink that strategy for the 2014 annual enrollment season, according to Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON). Employees can expect to see a number of changes to their health benefits driven by rising health costs and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

Despite Limited Budgets and Pressure to Contain Costs, Most Employers Continue Focus on Rewarding Top Talent  Research from Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), reveals salary increases for U.S. workers in 2014 are expected to reach their highest levels in six years.

08/14/13 Aon Hewitt Report Shows Women Lag Behind Men in Saving for Retirement
Weaker Savings and Investment Behaviors Have Negative, Long-Term Impact on Women's Retirement Readiness A new report from Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), shows that women save less for retirement and are more likely to default on loans taken out of their retirement savings than their male counterparts. These savings and investing habits, coupled with longer life expectancies, play a critical role in why women are less likely than men to be able to meet their financial needs in retirement. Aon Hewitt's analysis of more than 140 defined contribution plans representing 3.5 million eligible employees shows that while women are participating in their employers' defined contribution plans at the same rates as men, they save less—an average of 6.9 percent of pay, compared to 7.6 percent for men. In addition, nearly a third (31 percent) of women contribute below the company match threshold, compared to just a quarter of men. As a...
