Financial Well-Being

Financial well-being can be defined as “a state of being wherein a person can fully meet current and ongoing financial obligations, can feel secure in their financial future, and is able to make choices that allow enjoyment of life." (Source: consumerfinance.gov)

In addition to offering retirement options for its employees, the University of Iowa sponsors financial education opportunities. Financial well-being programs are offered in collaboration between University Benefits and UI Wellness.
