Financial Wellness

Satisfaction with current and future financial situations.

Finances can be a significant source of stress for many individuals. Retirement, budgeting, saving, and debt reduction are all factors that contribute to overall financial wellness. Developing a strong financial foundation and ongoing plan to help reach future financial goals can held reduce the burden of financial stress.


UT employees have access to multiple resources that can help with financial planning. Retirement offers Life Planning Seminars, classes, and personalized retirement projections free for employees. 

UTK Human Resources has set up a series of financial classes to help you get on the road to financial wellness.

While none of us like to talk about finances, it is such an important part of our health and well being.  If you are stressed about your finances it affects both your personal life and work life.  Come participate in our financial series to educate yourself on steps to take towards financial well-being.

We begin with “Holiday Budgeting”.  When the holidays come around we tend to spend more than we planned.  This program will help you answer questions like:  What does money mean to you?  Does money make the holiday better?  How motivated are you to change your money belief system?
