PlanMember knows that financially literate employees make better financial decisions. When employees understand personal finance and the positive results of creating and sticking with a retirement plan early on, participation can increase and so can contribution amounts. The goal of a retirement plan is not only to attract and retain employees, but also to provide resources to help them gain a better understanding of how to effectively save and invest for their futures. PlanMember delivers financial literacy education to plan participants through a variety of channels, including an online Retirement Academy and co-branded employer websites featuring calculators, tools and other resources. Your local PlanMember Financial Center offers complimentary educational seminars and workshops, and independent financial professionals are available to help employees gain a better understanding of how to save money for retirement and other goals one-on-one.
