Four Seasons Financial Education Helps Employees Boost 401(k) Savings and Debt Payments

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

According to financial wellness firm, Four Seasons Financial Education, the two most requested reasons for workplace financial education are retirement planning and debt planning. To address this demand, they have developed a new program to show employees unique savings strategies. Employers understand the need for increased retirement savings for employees, but are concerned with the average of $ 7,055 in credit card debt owed by the averaged American*. Four Seasons President, Travis Freeman, says employees just need help thinking outside the box.

“Paying down debt is important, but if you have a 401(k) employer match at 100% and your debt is charging you 12%, I would rather take the 100% return,” says Freeman. “After prioritizing cash flow such as this, we show employees how they may save money on insurance, home expenses, or taxes which can all go toward extra debt payments. It’s not hard once you reset your mental calculator.”

Freemen went on to explain that employees are often stressed about financial goals because they simply don’t have the training. 401(k) education helps with understanding investments, but comprehensive knowledge which brings personal finance together is what helps employees decrease financial stress. The goal is to improve employee performance as workplace stress is decreased.
