Financial Planning for Recipients of ArcelorMittal Pension Plans

ArcelorMittal, headquartered in Luxembourg City, is one of the world’s largest steel producers. It maintains multiple facilities throughout the globe, including offices in Indiana. The company was a top employer in the East Chicago and Burns Harbors areas until its facilities were sold to Cleveland-Cliffs in late 2020.

Many ArcelorMittal employees are entitled to pension plan benefits upon retirement. However, understanding how to make the best use of those benefits can be confusing. If you are an ArcelorMittal or Cleveland-Cliffs employee in Burns Harbor or East Chicago, please contact our experienced financial planners at Harvest Wealth Partners to discuss options for putting your pension plan benefits to work for you.

Basics of Your ArcelorMittal Pension Plan

If you work for ArcelorMittal, it’s important that you understand what a pension plan is, the pension plan benefits provided by ArcelorMittal, and your overall retirement options. Here are some basics of your ArcelorMittal pension plan you should be aware of:

  • Automatic benefit – Your ArcelorMittal pension plan is an automatic benefit that is designed to provide you with income, based on your service at ArcelorMittal, at the time of your retirement.
  • No-cost – The full cost of this benefit is covered; you pay nothing in order to maintain and collect pension benefits.
  • Service calculation – Your pension benefits are based on your years of service. Your service is used to determine the value of your plan benefit, as well as when you become 100 percent vested (vesting refers to the dollar amount of benefits that is owned by the employee). One year of service is credited for every 12-month period you serve; 1/12 of a service year is credited for every month you serve.

A Financial Planner Can Help You Prepare for Retirement

If you are an ArcelorMittal employee, you may have questions about when you can retire and start collecting your pension benefits. Under the ArcelorMittal pension plan, you maintain the right to retire early, late, or at normal retirement age; however, there are certain requirements for retiring early or late, and the benefit amount that you receive can be affected. Before you decide to retire and collect your retirement benefits, you may want to consult with an experienced financial planner – when you start collecting benefits can have a significant effect on the amount that you are able to collect over time, and your overall financial picture. If you are ready to retire and want to start collecting your benefits, you can contact your local benefits office directly.
