FPSA Financial Wellness Program

FPSA management is proud to announce the launch of the FPSA Financial Wellness Program in response to a request from the Young Professionals Group. This exclusive program, developed by Truist Momentum, offers employees of FPSA member companies the tools and education to build confidence in their financial future. Studies show that employees spend an average of 28 hours per month worrying about their finances—a cost of over $5,000 per employee, per year, in lost productivity. This program succeeds by focusing on what matters most to people—their values—instead of just their money. Then it shows how financial confidence can help them to spend more time doing what they love and less time worrying about money. The program includes several components designed to inspire, educate, and equip your people to gain financial confidence.

Member Companies, please log in to the FPSA Member Portal to find contact information to sign up for this valuable program.
