Practical

You want your employees to have every chance to reach the retirement finish line with enough money. While saving is of course critical, investing right – and avoiding the emotional panic selling that sabotages most DIY investors – is the other critical part of the equation. Sadly, most financial wellness courses barely scratch the surface of this vital topic.

With Wavelength, you get serious investment and financial education in an engaging, user-friendly format that promotes awareness and action.

Most plan participants are overwhelmed by technical and financial concepts. We translate all of that into easy, everyday language. Better, we break down each section into Easy Steps. Simple things that promote action. When users are ready, they can progress to more advanced topics and spend as much time as they like.
I feel like I am being encouraged to succeed and feel comfortable  with money concepts rather  than being overwhelmed with technical financial talk.”

Wavelength gets that most people do not like math, and equate math with money. So our programs focus more on psychology and human behavior, which are far more interesting.

Preventative

Today, there’s another issue that must unfortunately be kept in mind: that’s a growing concern about lawsuits against plan sponsors. Investment fees are an area of focus in recent cases.

Investment fees make a huge impact on the average workers’ ending retirement balance. In fact, the impact is so striking it can cost workers literally hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Sadly, the mandated fee disclosures are generally regarded as ineffective. But to prevent problems down the road, smart plan sponsors know that they need to make this information easily available.

Now you can. Wavelength’s program provides engaging, user-friendly content on how to decipher all those tricky mutual fund fees. While of course there’s no guarantee against future liability, it shows your commitment to transparency and to your employees’ best interests.

In most cases, Financial Wellness can be funded as a qualified plan expense. Check with your plan advisor or legal counsel.
