Vitality Group and SmartDollar have combined forces to give companies
the best option for providing financial wellness to their employees.
Nearly 80% of American workers are living paycheck-to-paycheck and
almost half couldn’t afford a $400 emergency without borrowing.
SmartDollar is specifically designed to change that.
“People work too hard to have so little to show for it,” said Brian
Hamilton, Vice President, SmartDollar. “And they don’t leave their money
problems at home. Money stress effects productivity, turnover, and
healthcare costs. We’re thrilled to team with Vitality Group to give
people a plan that’s helped millions eliminate debt, save for
emergencies, and retire with confidence.”
Vitality’s mission is to make people healthier and enhance and protect
their lives. A behavior change company, Vitality provides health and
wellness solutions for employer groups, health plans and insurers around

mental and physical health which is why we’ve added SmartDollar to our

Development. “Vitality members can now receive personalized and dynamic
financial health recommendations and resources specific to their needs
in a way that meets them where they are. These offerings are supported
