In support of our corporate identity efforts, effective December 15, 2014, the names of Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A. and Chrysler Group LLC have changed to FCA Italy S.p.A. and FCA US LLC.
Click here for Frequently Asked Questions.

On October 13, 2014 our parent company, Fiat S.p.A., became Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. and listed its stock on the New York Stock Exchange and Mercato Telematico Azionario in Milan. This occasion further reinforces our presence as the seventh largest global automaker moving forward as a single group with a united team of leaders and a common set of goals and ambitions.

In North America, we at Chrysler Group LLC are pleased and proud to continue as an integral part of this global enterprise.

As a valued retiree and a member of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles family, we appreciate your continued support as we continue on the path we've set in our 5-year plan.

Important Notice!

UPDATE 3-9-2015
Updated Information Regarding the HSA Bancorp to Bank of America Rollover
It has recently come to our attention that there is an issue with the magnetic strip on the back of Bank of America health care debit cards issued between January 24, 2015 and February 27, 2015. On every magnetic strip there are two tracks of data which include card #, expiration data, CV code and customer name. The track that contains the CV code is off by one digit. Merchants set up their card reader to use one or the other track. The majority of declined transactions were at CVS and Walgreens based on the way the card readers are set. Transactions keyed manually are approved.

While many may never experience an issue with the card, Bank of America will replace the defective cards with new ones beginning the week of March 9th.

Important Notes:

  • Only cards issued between January 24, 2015 and February 27, 2015 will be replaced.
  • Cards issued after February 27, 2015 are valid with a properly functioning magnetic strip
  • Card number will remain the same.
  • The existing card will remain active as we reissue replacement cards.
  • Participants will NOT receive a new Personal Identification Number (PIN) (this applies to FSA cards only).
  • Participants should destroy the old card upon receipt of the new card.

Please direct any questions you may have regarding your account to the Bank of America service center at 1-800-615-0319.

We've added a new tab called "Retirement & Savings".

This new page will make it easier for you to find information and announcements related to your Retirement and Savings plans.

Michigan Withholding Changes
The following tax change does not apply if you have elected to pay a flat amount of Michigan State tax.

On October 1, 2012, Michigan mandatory state tax withholding decreased from 4.35% to 4.25%. This change will be updated for pension payments beginning in November. As a result, pension payees who currently have Michigan tax withholding and have not elected a flat dollar withholding amount may see a decrease in the amount withheld beginning November 1. There will be no retroactive adjustments for this change. For more information you can visit the Michigan website at www.Michigan.gov/taxes.

If you would like to change your pension payment withholding, you may do so at any time. To do so, you must provide your marital status and personal allowances. The amount to withhold from you pension payment is calculated based on this information. You can provide this information by calling Benefit Express at 1-888-409-3300 or by making an election on Your Benefits Resource at http://resources.hewitt.com/chrysler.

Attention Michigan Retirees:
Effective January 1, 2012, Michigan's Income Tax for pension and retirement benefits will change. Michigan law now requires the administrators of pension and retirement benefits to withhold income tax on payments that will be subject to tax. Click here for details..
