Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Submission of Matters to a Vote of


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Item 5.02(e) Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On November 14, 2013, the Compensation Committee of Towers Watson & Co. (the "Company") approved a Non-Qualified Deferred Savings Plan for U.S. associates (the "Plan"). The Plan is an unfunded deferred compensation plan for select management and other highly-compensated associates, including the Company's executive officers. The purpose of the Plan is to provide a select group of associates who contribute significantly to the future success of the Company with a means to defer receipt of a portion of their compensation, and potentially to receive a discretionary matching contribution from the Company. All associate deferrals, and all Company matches, will be credited in the form of Company stock units under the Towers Watson & Co. 2009 Long Term Incentive Plan; as a result, the value of the notional account will be aligned with the value of the Company's underlying stock.

Under the Plan, eligible associates may defer up to 6% of eligible salary and bonus compensation ("Eligible Compensation"). The matching contribution from the Company is discretionary, and initially (to the extent provided) will be in an amount of 100% of a participant's deferred amount, up to 2% of Eligible Compensation; and 50% of a participant's deferred amount, in excess of 2%, and not greater than 6%, of Eligible Compensation. Participants will be fully vested at all times in their elective deferred amount, and any earnings on such deferrals. Unless otherwise determined by the governing Company committee, Company matching contributions will fully vest on the earliest of two years of service (as calculated under the Company's qualified savings plan), the participant's death and the participant's disability (as determined in accordance with the Company's long-term disability plan). Each account shall be deemed invested in shares of Company stock, and shall be paid in shares of Company stock. To comply with IRC Section 409A, payments will be made on the first business day of the month following the date that is six months after the participant's separation from service.

Effective January 1, 2014, executive officers will no longer receive supplemental excess match payments tied to the current Towers Watson Savings Plan. The excess match payments will be discontinued for all employees effective January 1, 2014.
