A recent article by the National Association of Plan Advisors calls 401(k) education the biggest failure of adult education in history.
Many times, retirement education is a thinly veiled sales pitch or a once-a-year meeting that goes over the employees’ heads. Real behavior change is best taught by those who specialize in true education.

You can't 'auto' broke people.
The industry has tried to encourage people to participate in their 401(k)s and increase their contributions, but it still isn’t getting to the root of the problem. Auto-enrollment and auto-escalation are great tools, but people still won’t invest 15% of their income in their retirement account if they don’t know where to find the money.
Pump up your face-to-face meetings.
In addition to bringing SmartDollar to your clients, we also provide content for your 401(k) meetings. You’ll get everything from talking points to video content and activities to help you create a well-rounded education experience without the legwork.
Let our platform elevate your business.
