The far-reaching impact of financial well‑being
Financial well-being is having a sense of security in your financial status and little to no financial stress. In these challenging times, it's critical to focus on employees' financial health, since it plays a large role in their overall well-being.
48% of the U.S. workforce is affected by financial stress, which is linked to panic attacks and suicidal thoughts, costing $500 billion per year.*
The latest episode of the Cigna Life ConnectedSM podcast focuses on the three phases of financial well-being: making employees aware of financial stress, encouraging them to activate a plan to reduce it and helping them adopt behaviors to meet their financial goals.LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
