Financial Wellness in America
Since the 1970’s, the United States has shifted the burden of saving for retirement from the employer to the employee. Pensions are now a thing of the past, and employees have taken on the sole responsibility for their financial futures. 80% of the workforce is living paycheck to paycheck – with 46% of those employees stressing about finances at work at least 3 hours per week. FFG was created to help empower the individual to become more profitable and suffer less daily stress. Their online education solutions were specifically developed to reduce the anxiety, lack of clarity or absence of financial planning that yields uncertainty related to money, including debt, medical bills, saving for retirement or children’s education. FFG impacts people’s lives by giving them the knowledge and information to confidently reach their financial goals.
