Group helping former Deere workers with retirement issues


WATERLOO (KWWL)---Former John Deere workers are getting some help with their retirement.  The John Deere Retirees Organization met today in Waterloo to share tips on Medicare and other insurance benefits.  You'll recall the group previously filed an unsuccessful lawsuit against Deere claiming that their benefits were inadequate.  Now that the litigation is over, the group is just hoping to serve Deere retirees by answering questions and providing information.

"When they get to the 65 level and no longer have the Deere supported healthcare then it becomes a little intimidating as to how to make the transition to Medicare," said Wally Mochal, president of the Waterloo J.D.R.O. group.
