(SOLUTION) Caterpillar Aon Hewitt 401K Account {Includes Company ID for Caterpillar}

I just wanted to post the way I was able to access my AON Hewitt Caterpillar Account. Many of the solutions rely on getting access to the company ID from a URL. However, many of the URLs on Hewitts website now include references to some hidden html links. However, I was able to use Chrome's developer tools to view the HTML and pull out Caterpillar's Company ID.

Step 1: Confirm the proper username and password. To do this login to caterpillar aon hewitt accounts here: http://resources.hewitt.com/cat/

Step 2: Add Aon-Hewitt account
Once you know your username and password, you can add the aon hewitt account to mint. The username used inside of mint to connect to the aon heweitt account is formatted as "username-copmanyId". The Company ID for Caterpillar is 02358 as of 8/27/2016.

Username: USERNAME-02358 {Make sure to use all caps for your username here}
Password: YourUniquePassword

Hope this helps!

For those looking to use a similar approach for their company Extracting Company ID using Chrome Developer Tools:

Login to your aon hewitt account. I used this link for Caterpillar. http://resources.hewitt.com/cat/

From there I had to click around until I saw a historical trend of my 401k balance.

From Google Chrome Browser, select the top right pull down menu --> More Tools --> Developer Tools. I've attached the location of the "sources" tab that I found the URL that I needed. See attached for details from here.

Then I looked for a nice 5 digit code similar to what I've seen in older URL examples listed elsewhere on mint (Like here: https://mint.lc.intuit.com/questions/1223445-aon-hewitt-fix-that-works-solution-not-question)

Good Luck!!

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
