The Hartford Collaborates With Origin To Help Support The Financial Well-being Of U.S. Workers

Company introduces Origin to provide employers financial education and planning tools for their employees

HARTFORD, Conn., February 29, 2024--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Hartford, a leading provider of employee benefits and leave management, is introducing a new tool to help its employer customers address the financial wellness needs of their employees. The company will refer Origin’s Financial Planning1 platform to its customers to provide U.S. workers access to financial education, budgeting and planning tools to help them manage their personal finances and plan for the future.2

"We continue to expand our Group Benefits offerings to provide the benefits and resources our employer clients are seeking to help care for their employees," said Jonathan Bennett, head of Group Benefits at The Hartford. "Our research has consistently shown that U.S. workers are stressed about their household finances and we have seen how an unexpected injury, illness or loss of a loved one can disrupt someone’s financial situation, especially those living paycheck to paycheck. We are pleased to introduce this platform to help people manage their personal finances, learn more about their benefits and, take steps to improve their financial security."

The Hartford’s Future of Benefits Study found one-third of U.S. workers do not feel secure about their household financial situation and many would welcome financial education tools from their employer to help with retirement planning, managing debt, establishing a savings plan and basic budgeting.

Origin’s Financial Planning platform provides personal financial management tools to help address budgeting and savings needs, as well as financial guidance and benefits education at no cost. In addition, employers or their employees will have the option to purchase enhanced services such as tax filing and access to a certified financial planner for one-on-one personal financial advice.

Origin is an all-in-one software based financial management platform that enables people to track their income and spending, get one-on-one financial guidance from a network of certified financial planners, and help members manage their money confidently and with ease.

"Financial stress has a major impact on employer productivity," said Matt Watson, founder and CEO of Origin. "Even though financial wellness starts with a paycheck, many employers aren’t providing financial wellness assistance to their employees. Origin’s new relationship with The Hartford will help increase employee access to high-quality financial planning."

This new tool is the latest example of The Hartford’s commitment to assisting employers with a wide array of benefit and service options to meet the unique needs of their workforce and to help working Americans become more financially secure.
