Enjoy Your Retirement

Grainger is committed to rewarding your role in our shared success and helping you build your Financial Future.

As part of that commitment, we offer three key retirement benefits (each is subject to its own specific eligibility rules):

  • Profit Sharing Plan (with 401(k) feature)*
  • Retiree Health Benefits (hired before 1/1/13)**
  • Retirement Recognition

If you are preparing to retire, it's important that you understand the benefits available to you so you can plan accordingly. This guide highlights the tools and resources available to you—both through Grainger and elsewhere—to help you achieve your retirement goals. It also tells you which benefits you are eligible for based on things like your years of service at Grainger, average number of hours worked per week, and age. Review Your Retirement-Ready Roadmap for all the details of your retirement benefits.

​Remember

If you or your spouse is Medicare-eligible (age 65 or older or early-Medicare) contact Via Benefits at least two months before to get your plans set up for first of the month following your date of retirement at 1-888-230-0074.

*If you are a team member of Zoro, you can only participate in a 401(k). You are not eligible to participate in the Profit Sharing Plan.
**​Part-time team members, including those working 30 to 39 hours per week, are not eligible for retiree health benefits.​
