ING U.S. Launches New Online Personal Financial Planning And Budgeting Solution

Stocks in this article: VOYA

WINDSOR, Conn., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ING U.S., Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), which will rebrand as Voya Financial, Inc. in 2014, announced today that its Retirement Solutions business has launched a new web-based tool that enables users to organize, integrate and manage all of their financial information on one comprehensive and intuitive digital platform.  The personal financial planning and budgeting dashboard is the latest in the ING U.S. suite of retirement readiness services to help Americans gain control of their financial lives and guide them on their journey to greater retirement security.  A video describing the dashboard and its features is available at http://www.ingdelivers.com/organize.

"Proper budgeting and planning is the first step to taking control of your financial future and ultimately, preparing for the biggest financial event in life -- your retirement security," noted ING U.S. Retirement Solutions Chief Marketing Officer, Patrick Kennedy.  "For many people, keeping track of their numerous financial accounts, decisions and budgeting activities is a complicated undertaking.  Our research shows that consumers want a consolidated view of their personal finances through easy-to-use tools and services that can seamlessly pull this information together.  A growing number of people are also looking to their employers as a resource when it comes to managing the financial aspects of their lives."  

According to recent findings 1 from the ING Retirement Research Institute, almost three-quarters ( 72%) of pre-retirees confirmed that their employer offered some type of holistic financial planning guidance.  Of the more than one-half ( 54%) who took advantage of this guidance, nine-in-ten ( 90%) found it helpful.  Among all those nearing retirement, just about half ( 49%) wanted advice on specific key aspects of retirement planning, including developing a retirement income strategy, planning for healthcare expenses and creating a monthly income from savings.

Providing Millions Access to Holistic Financial Information, Education and Guidance

The new personal financial dashboard supports the growing trend and need for financial advice, guidance and holistic planning services at the workplace.  As part of the company's expanding platform of retirement readiness solutions, the dashboard has been rolled out to more than 16,000 plan sponsor clients of ING U.S. -- reaching over 1.5 million individual participants.  It is being offered at no cost as a value-added enhancement on their retirement plan website through ING U.S.  Availability will expand throughout 2014 to the rest of ING U.S.'s estimated 47,000 plan sponsor clients and 5 million participants.
