Pensions & Investments Eddy Awards

OneAmerica Retirement Services and its client Milwaukee County Transit System were honored with a 2022 Pensions & Investments Eddy Award for “Special Projects/Public” that got over 1,000 participants on board with the importance of investing. OneAmerica also won third place for “Special Projects” for its pretirement multimedia campaign (including our ‘pretirement starts now’ video.)
