The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the economic stress of many households. 38 percent of American employees, including 62 percent of Generation Z workers, saved less than $ 1,000 to meet emergency expenses.The pandemic has also created a demand for more online research and education. The GreenPath Learning Lab provides online access to content designed to inspire users towards their financial goals and change behavior in order to respond to them.
The Learning Lab resource provides people with a range of easy-to-use educational experiences that will help them manage money more effectively. With a simple login for access, individuals can engage in hands-on “choose your own adventure” -style learning activities on spending and budgeting, forbearance, and other financial topics. The free study materials embedded in the Learning Lab leverage GreenPath’s 60 years of experience as a trusted national not-for-profit organization providing independent financial advice. The Learning Lab is always accessible and can help alleviate the anxiety associated with seeking financial help. The tutorial enables users to contact a GreenPath expert directly for one-on-one, one-on-one assistance. Applied knowledge can be used to help individuals build financial healthy habits over time.
