FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

All questions about DuPont’s U.S. retiree benefits – or benefits questions related to the proposed merger of DuPont and The Dow Chemical Company and the intended creation of three strong, industry leading, independent companies – should be submitted to U.S.-Retiree@dupont.com. While we will make every attempt to address all general questions that are submitted, we may be unable to address specific merger-related pension benefits questions until after the transaction has been consummated. Please be assured we will communicate with the entire plan participant community as important decisions are made.

If you have questions related to your individual benefits, you will need to contact the appropriate service center. A complete list of service centers can be found on the Contact page.
