Finance and Stress:
Can Plan Sponsors and Administrators ease the pain?
The biggest source of stress for Canadians is financial stress — 48% say they’ve lost sleep because of financial worries*.
In many cases, the lack of financial literacy contributes to financial stress which can affect workplace performance, personal relationships and individual opportunities for an adequate and sustainable retirement.
Despite the fact that many Canadians have retirement savings in pension or capital accumulation plans, they still may not be able to understand investment options or plan for their own longevity. Upon retirement, plan members may have to manage their savings and they can make decisions that end in scenarios that are more of a nightmare than a dream.
Can plan sponsors and administrators contribute to helping their plan members improve their financial literacy and their overall financial wellness?
Federal and provincial governments and dozens of organizations have spent years in promoting financial literacy and providing tools to consumers. Despite this availability, many financial decisions continue to lead to bad outcomes that affect home environments and workplace productivity — 46% of employees say that stress related to personal finances impacts their workplace performance**.
Plan sponsors and administrators are frontline communicators with millions of working and retiring Canadians and are in a unique position to improve financial outcomes for plan members, support the growth of financial literacy and contribute to an equitable and sustainable retirement income system.
In addition to a panel of professionals that will examine the challenges of financial literacy and wellness, ACPM will be presenting draft recommendations on how improving financial literacy is better for plan members and the organizations that serve them.
This will be an interactive session and we look forward to your input.
