More than half of all workers in the US have less than $25,000 put away for retirement, and more than half of all retirees have less than $25,000 saved. A recent Gallup poll says that not having enough money to retire is the nations biggest financial worry, in fact it is the top concern for 2 of 3 Americans.
Financial education in the workplace is proven to produce results that include increased morale, lower rates of absenteeism, as well as less turnover and fewer distractions in the workplace. FPFE has local Chapters across the country that provide workshops to employer groups covering various topics related to personal financial planning and financial well-being. The Foundation for Personal Financial Education (FPFE) consists of experienced financial services professionals who donate their time speaking and counseling to government agencies at the local, state and federal level, large corporations, small businesses, professional groups, and trade organizations. Because individual education of sound financial principles is our sole purpose, our workshops are not sales events, we do not endorse any products, nor do we mention any specific products or companies in our workshops.
