Mercer Launches Financial Wellness Program

The solution integrates offerings from five independent financial wellness providers.

Mercer has launched Mercer Financial Wellness, a digital solution that integrates independent experts on the subjects of asset growth, debt management and budgeting.

“Employees are increasingly interested in their employer providing benefits that help them with their overall financial wellness—moving beyond the focus on retirement to address a wide range of financial needs, from individual coaching to challenges facing new families to better debt management,” says Tom Murphy, U.S. defined contribution and financial wellness leader at Mercer.

The service includes tools from Plaid that enable users to integrate multiple financial accounts and analyze monthly spending in order to set budgets. Transamerica retirement counselors are also on hand through the program to provide information on retirement savings, Social Security and individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Experian also provides credit scores, Avant can arrange for unsecured personal loans, and CommonBond enables people to refinance their student loans at lower rates.
