Pension and benefits update

The changeover to Northern Trust as payer of the following pension plans is complete:

  • The Dow Employees’ Pension Plan (DEPP) (which includes the former Dow Corning and Rohm and Haas Pension Plans)
  • The Union Carbide Employees’ Pension Plan (UCEPP)
  • The Dow Chemical Canada ULC Salaried Employees Pension Plan (Dow Canada Plan) (which includes the former Retirement Plan for Employees of Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc.), and the Rohm and Haas Canada Inc. Retirement Plan (ROH Canada Plan)


A mailing (dated June 13, 2019) provided the details of this transition. Generally, this means your monthly pension payments – beginning in July for DEPP and in August for the UCEPP, Dow Canada and Rohm and Haas Canada Plans – along with corresponding year-end tax forms, will be issued by Northern Trust. This change should not have an effect on the amount or form of your monthly pension payment – or your eligibility for other Dow retiree benefits.

Please visit if you need to make any of the following updates:

  • Changing your home and/or mailing address
  • Updating your federal and/or state tax withholding elections
  • Initiating direct deposit or updating your direct deposit information


The Retiree Service Center is available to assist you with any of the changes above, as well as reporting non-receipt of your monthly pension payment or a lost pension check.


A completely updated Benefits & Wellbeing site launched in October. The new site contains all benefit resources available to you.

Note: Currently bookmarked sites will be re-directed to the new site.

Exception: If you are currently receiving all or a portion of your pension through an insurance company, you will continue to receive these pension payments through that insurance company and not through Northern Trust.
