Your Retirement Guide
A step-by-step checklist
You're Retiring Soon
Congratulations! Retirement is a big step.
You'll be asked to make many important decisions about your Arconic
benefits and your financial security over the next few weeks and
months. This easy-to-use guide takes you step by step through the
Arconic retirement process. It also gives you information about some
of the other things you need to know, do, and consider to make sure
that your retirement starts off right.
How to Get Started
Just call 1-844-9ARCONIC (844-927-2664) and enter the last four digits
of your Social Security number, enter your date of birth, choose the
"retirement" option, and, when prompted, enter your PIN. You'll be
transferred to a Retirement Specialist. That specialist will be your single
point of contact for the entire process, and he or she will work with
you--using this guide--? until you retire. Your Retirement Specialist's job
is to make the process easy, convenient, and hassle free--and to make
sure that you retire with peace of mind.
Note: If your Retirement Specialist isn't available when you call, another
specialist can provide an update for you or schedule a time for your
Retirement Specialist to return your call.
While you're able to estimate your projected retirement benefit at any
time before you actually begin the retirement process, plan to start the
retirement process 90 days before you want to retire. This will give
both you and Arconic enough time to get everything in place for a
smooth transition.
