AMERICA’S RETIREMENT SYSTEM OFFERING DAVE RAMSEY’S CORE FINANCIAL WELLNESS FOR 401(K) PARTICIPANTS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — America’s Retirement System is now providing Dave Ramsey’s CORE Financial Wellness to participants in their 401(k) plans. CORE Financial Wellness is the premier curriculum for teaching financial literacy in a corporate setting.
Ramsey developed CORE Financial Wellness to teach employees and 401(k) participants sound financial principles so they can avoid financial difficulties and become retirement ready. CORE Financial Wellness teaches people how to save, spend wisely, eliminate debt and invest with confidence for retirement.
"We are constantly seeking ways to improve the services we offer to our plan sponsors and participants,” said Quincy Faison, President of America’s Retirement System. “This strategic relationship with Dave Ramsey's CORE Financial Wellness curriculum is just another example of services that we will continue to add to our portfolio. It is our goal for Dave's curriculum to become the nucleus of our participant educational platform."
Brian Hamilton, Vice President of Financial Wellness for Dave Ramsey’s company, said, “With 70% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, it’s no wonder most employees aren’t on track for retirement. Thanks to America’s Retirement System, retirement readiness will be attainable for thousands of employees and their families as they walk through a proven plan that teaches them how to change bad habits, get control of their money, and start investing for the future.”
The mission of the program is to help participants change their behavior towards money and in turn, use their largest wealth-building tool, their income, to save and invest instead of paying consumer debt. The average family in a CORE Financial Wellness program pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 90 days after beginning the program, and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months. CORE Financial Wellness is primarily offered as an online program and is available to companies of all sizes.
