Credit health: Your new credit building benefit.
Good credit means financially healthy and resilient employees with less stress and greater presence.
Add credit building to your benefits package.
Give your employees one-on-one support to build a strong credit score and reap the benefits. That means more employees can rent quality housing, get good rates on car loans and credit cards, qualify for a mortgage, weather a financial crisis, and contribute to their 401(k) or 403(b). Group and standard benefit offerings are available.
What we can do for your employees.

Better credit opens doors for employees.
Simply having a job doesn’t ease the weight of financial problems. Nearly half of American workers are financially stressed. And 3 out of 4 workers are living paycheck to paycheck. Nearly 1 in 3 employees report that issues with their personal finances have been a distraction at work, which ends up costing employers nearly $7,000 per employee per year. Investing in your employees’ financial health helps them and your organization.
