Financial Wellness

Financial Wellness

Financial wellness is being able to manage the responsibilities we have throughout our lives. Financial planning moves with you as you transition from one stage of your life to the next, which is why it's important to get serious about your money, like signing up for one-on-one sessions with a TIAA representative, viewing webinars on how to manage and invest your money, and participating in wellness incentive plans to reward yourself for getting healthy. Dealing with debt, saving for retirement, and learning how to take advantage of Pitt's health and wellness rewards and benefits plans are only the start of what we can do to make you feel more secure in your financial wellness.
