Your Resource Partner
Welcome Association of School Business Officials
As a strategic partner of International Association of School Business Officials, we are pleased to bring you hand-picked resources to help your employees to and through retirement, cultivated through decades of experience supporting educators across the United States.
Financial Wellness Can Benefit Your Bottom Line
In PwC's 2020 Employee Financial Wellness Survey, finance and money was cited as the most significant source of stress, nearly five times more than health concerns, despite being in the midst of a global pandemic1.
Further, a recent study by Enrich.org showing that financial, physical, and emotional stress are interrelated and cost U.S. businesses $500 Billion a year2.
Reducing stress is good for your employees and good for your bottom line. As more than just a retirement plan provider, Security Benefit helps you offer 'Whole Person' planning through local independent financial professionals. For example, we designed the new My Security Benefit mobile app to help your team members expand their financial know-how and create a plan for their physical and emotional well-being. To encourage participation, they can earn rewards3, to popular retailers such as Target, Starbucks, Walmart, Apple, and many more.
Help Them Retire When They Want To, Not When They Need To
It can be challenging for your teachers to envision their retirement futures, especially during these extraordinarily difficult times. Helping your teachers prepare for retirement is critical to helping them manage their financial stress.
Security Benefit partners with independent financial professionals who live and work in your local community and specialize in helping educators fully understand pension options and their overall retirement picture. Using tools such as our Paycheck Report and Gap Analysis, our network of financial professionals can help your teachers learn what they can do today to prepare for tomorrow.
Please let your Security Benefit Team introduce your team to a financial advisor specifically experienced in helping educators prepare for retirement.
As with the saying, “The cobbler's kids have no shoes", your educators often neglect their own needs while helping their students learn. To help them help themselves, we are proud to be a sponsor of the Emerging Leaders Scholarship program to support the development of future leaders of school business officials.
Furthermore, we offer a comprehensive curriculum for your teachers to increase their financial acumen and improve their retirement readiness.
Emerging Leaders Scholarship
Designed to develop tomorrow's leaders, the Emerging Leadership Scholarship program awards $2,000 to 18 recipients each year to be applied toward the ASBO International Annual Conference & Expo registration where they can establish lasting relationships with a network of peers and mentors and take part in exclusive training and networking events. Applications and nominations for this year's scholarship will be accepted until June 1, 2021. Visit the www.asbointl.org for information and to obtain Application and Nomination forms.
With combined expertise in retirement, and with educators, we have developed a comprehensive curriculum of informational courses tailored to meet your teams' unique needs. Below is a sampling of the topics.
