  9. "Retiree health benefits are not what company promised"

    Former Employee - Director in Schaumburg, IL
    Former Employee - Director in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at Motorola Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I get a small amount

    Cons

    It doesn't even pay for 2 moths worth of basic medicare and part B and D coverage

    Advice to Management

    I was told I could expect medical benefits for life after retiring with 35 yrs of service. I am 65 and in my first year of medicare and my HRA for the entire year of 2019 is only $560. That doesn't even cover basic medicare, and parts B and D coverage for 2 months! When I need the money most I get the least from Motorola Solutions. I view this as not very appreciative of my service.
