Your Wellbeing

Building wellbeing can be a game-changer for
you and your family. Grainger’s cutting-edge
benefits are ready when you need them.
You’ve got this because you’ve got Grainger.

For Retirees

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):

  • Retirement Savings Plan (with 401(k) plan)*
  • 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 are eligible for a different 401(k) plan. For details, contact a Benefit Pro.
**​Part-time team members, including those working 30 to 39 hours per week, are not eligible for retiree health benefits.​

Dear Team Member,

The last 18 months have pulled us in all sorts of directions and presented several new challenges. Many of you have had to adapt to an ever-changing lifestyle that includes homeschooling kids, working overtime, taking care of loved ones, and worrying about finances. At Grainger, we recognize the toll these changes take on your personal wellbeing. And while I’m proud to say you’ve continued to provide exceptional customer service despite these challenges, it’s just as important to put the same attention on yourself.

We want you to be your best, not only at work but at home. That’s why we’ve made some enhancements to our benefits programs to better support your emotional, financial, physical, and social wellbeing. These new programs will provide access to short-term cash, one-on-one financial coaching, or stress management support. Over the last year, we built a strong foundation of wellbeing resources to ensure you have more choice and flexibility with your benefits.

This Annual Enrollment Decision Guide will help you navigate the robust benefits that Grainger offers and support you in making your elections for 2022. Annual Enrollment will run from October 11 to 29, 2021. Now is the time for you to take action for you and your family’s wellbeing. We have more plans underway to continue to enhance our wellbeing offerings and we’re excited to share these with you soon.
As always, thank you for all you continue to do for each other, our organization, and our customers.

Stay well,
Kathleen Carroll
SVP & Chief Human Resources Officer
