Financial Wellness

Our approach to education includes providing employees with information, resources and solutions that help them take control of their finances.

At Empower, we’re helping employees remove the financial barriers preventing them from replacing — for life — income made while working. That’s why we create solutions that help with their current financial needs. Helping employees take control of their finances today can help them save more for their future.

Our simple, intuitive and actionable solutions are focused on three
important areas:

1. Personal consultations

Empower believes everyone should have the chance to achieve financial freedom. For many, that means more than just simply saving in a workplace savings plan. This is why we support consultative discussions and have expanded our suite of services.

For those employees not already working with a financial professional or advisor, our financial counselors provide support in multiple ways:

2. Empower Personalized Experience

Individuals benefit from a three-dimensional, full financial picture—including current savings progress, future estimated monthly income, and a 360⁰ view of outside assets, spending and debt. This highly-personalized, comprehensive experience is available online and via iOS3 and Android4 apps, helping to ensure savers have what they need when they need it.

Empower Student Debt Solution

Empower’s Student Debt Solution powered by Candidly5 is designed to help your employees pay off their student debt. While the program offers lending products and guidance tools that can help employees save on their student loan payments, you can also help them pay down their student debt. Or you can choose to contribute to their retirement plan accounts based on their student loan payments.

Help your employees reduce the financial stress associated with paying down their student debt.


Empower HSA

Empower has partnered with Optum® the largest health savings account (HSA) services provider and wellness leader,6 to provide an industry-leading, retirement-oriented health savings account. Saving for healthcare costs in retirement has never been easier.

3. Helpful Financial Education

We focus on a family’s financial wellness needs across all generations, providing simple and actionable education organized in the following categories:


We help employees manage ongoing income and expenses and control debt. For example, we show them how to potentially pay off debt utilizing a simple method.


We provide information covering basic investing concepts to help employees make more informed choices.


We emphasize saving for retirement as well as the importance of saving for a rainy day or other important short-term goals.


We explain in simple terms principles related to insuring against loss of income, taxes, Social Security optimization and creating a legacy.
