The United States is one of the richest countries in the world, yet many Americans live paycheck to paycheck. Retirement account balances are low, emergency savings often are nonexistent and financial stress severely hinders employee engagement, lowers productivity and increases absenteeism. Employers are often a trusted source of financial information.
