Aon Hewitt is launching a new retiree health exchange aimed at providing retiring workers with benefits tailored to their needs.

Due to go live in September 2017 and offered in partnership with La Capital Financial Group Inc., the retiree health exchange is an evolution of Aon’s active health exchange, which offers flexible benefits to current employees.

“Our focus over the last 18 months has been to identify areas where we can deliver programs that take into account the changing demographic of the Canadian workforce,” said Anthony Perlman, senior vice-president and national practice leader of health and benefits at Aon Hewitt, in a news release.

He noted employers have expressed an interest in continuing to offer retiree programs with personalized options similar to the active health exchange.

“We believe that we have plan provisions that are favourable to our clients and other products attached to this offer that will work well with a retiring or retired population,” said Perlman.
