Financial Wellness Programs

“A state of being wherein you have control over day-to-day, month-to-month finances; have the capacity to absorb a financial shock; are on track to meet your financial goals; and have the financial freedom to make the choices that allow you to enjoy life.”*

Barnum is a leader in educating and empowering individuals to maximize their financial opportunities, overcome their financial challenges, and better manage their financial lives. The result is less stress and greater confidence that you are taking the right steps for yourself and the people you love.

We provide these MetLife PlanSmart® programs at no cost to you or your employees, and you have the flexibility to use one, some, or all of the components as best suits your needs. These include:

Executive Services: Your senior executives and rising leaders often have more complex compensation packages, a greater need to minimize taxes, more involved estate plans, and other issues seldom addressed in traditional financial wellness programs. We integrate financial planning, education, and online wealth management tools to assist your top employees in building greater wealth, protecting their assets, and creating a well-coordinated financial life.
