New Online Dashboard Helps Members Reach Their Financial Wellness Goals
Since its launch in 2017, myVRS Financial Wellness has provided a core set of money-management resources to help VRS members:
- Plan and achieve their financial goals.
- Understand their personal relationship with money.
- Mange and reduce their debt.
- Increase their savings.
Now, thanks to a revamped dashboard and other new features, myVRS Financial Wellness is even better tailored to members’ individual financial needs and interests.
Any VRS member can access myVRS Financial Wellness. Members who already have registered their myVRS accounts simply need to log in and use the top menu to navigate to financial wellness. We strongly encourage members to register and verify their myVRS Accounts to take full advantage of the capabilities of myVRS Financial Wellness.
Once logged in, members will see a dashboard that includes a new left-hand menu with choices such as Outlook and Favorites. The main space of the dashboard features recommendations and tasks based on priorities and interests. A member may be prompted, for example, to create a budget or to watch a video on how to manage student loan debt.
Two quick assessments help lay the groundwork for getting the most out of myVRS Financial Wellness:
- The Financial Wellness Checkup, which asks about financial beliefs and stressors as well as goals.
- The What is Your Money Personality? quiz.
From there, members can start on tasks like building a budget or sharpening their forecast for retirement. Additional changes will be coming to the platform soon. For example, members will be able to accumulate experience points and earn badges for their progress.
