Retirement outcomes often depend on the interconnected health and wealth decisions of today

The interrelated financial decisions of today can impact the financial outcomes of the future. Overspending on a health insurance can make it harder for individuals to save for emergencies. Not saving enough for emergencies can expose them to financial shocks and expensive debt, which can lead them to cash out their retirement savings. Not saving for retirement can diminish their quality of life down the road and/or delay employee retirements for employers.

Complicated benefits decisions in an overstimulated world

Optimal savings and spending decisions are all about tradeoffs. Individuals need an ability to consider their complete financial picture — while understanding how one decision impacts another — to determine what choices are best today and in the future. Attention scarcity and our natural decision-making biases make it difficult for individuals to navigate their increasingly complex financial lives.
