Welcome Dow Corning Retirees                                                                                           


New - Affordable Care Act (ACA) Tax Form 1095-C Requirement

Beginning in 2016, the ACA requires employers like Dow Corning to furnish the IRS and employees/retirees with a new statement, Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage.  Normally, these statements would be furnished to you by January 31 of the year following coverage.  However, in this first year, the  IRS extended the deadline to March 31, 2016.  You will receive the Form 1095-C by the March 31, 2016 deadline.

You do not need to wait for the Form 1095-C in order to file your U.S. Income Tax Return.  You will not need to send the IRS proof of your health coverage.  However, when received, you should keep the Form 1095-C on file with your other tax records.  If you and your family (i.e., dependents) had health care coverage, you check the coverage box on your tax return forms. 


New - Fitness

As a Dow Corning retiree, your health and wellness are very important to us. We encourage you to maintain a fit and active lifestyle to help you feel better every day. You and your spouse are eligible to use the Dow Corning Fitness Center at the Corporate Site (in Midland Michigan).   For more information contact the DC1 Corporate Center front desk at 989-496-4000.   In addition, you will need to sign a medical release and liability form and have a badge made for you to use the Fitness Center. There will be an annual $20 fee, payable by check or money order to Dow Corning upon receipt of your badge.

You may use the Fitness Center seven days a week at your convenience during the following times:

 Monday through Friday       Saturday and Sunday                                             

  9:00 am to 11:00 am  7:00 am to 10:00 pm
  2:00 pm to 4:00 pm 
  7:00 pm to 10:00 pm 

Regular physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your health. If you have a chronic health condition such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, or other symptoms, be sure to talk with your doctor about the types and amounts of physical activity that are right for you.
