Emergency Savings Solution

Evolve your workplace offering with Voya’s flexible, convenient, out-of-plan emergency savings solution

Many Americans share a common financial vulnerability — a single unplanned expense can disrupt their financial stability because they have little or no emergency savings. In fact, 78% of U.S. workers live paycheck to paycheck.1

This lack of emergency savings puts retirement at risk. Employees without adequate emergency savings are:

  • 30% more likely to decrease contribution rates
  • 13x more likely to take a hardship withdrawal
  • 3x more likely to take a loan from their retirement plan2

Voya’s workplace solution allows employees to make contributions to a dedicated emergency savings fund to help prepare them for unexpected events and ultimately retirement. Our Emergency Savings Solution is easy to implement and flexible to manage, incorporating best practices for helping employees build emergency savings.
