ABG in Illinois Offers Ramsey’s Financial Education

Dave Ramsey's SmartDollar financial education program provides information about making and sticking to a budget and eliminating debt.

Alliance Benefit Group-Illinois is now providing Dave Ramsey’s SmartDollar financial counseling program to 401(k), 403(b) and 457(b) retirement plan participants.

Ramsey, a well-known personal finance guru, says his SmartDollar program helps teach defined contribution (DC) retirement plan participants sound financial principles, like saving, spending wisely, and eliminating debt, so they can avoid financial difficulties and become retirement ready.

Ramsey developed SmartDollar to bring a program to plan participants that gives effective guidance about making and sticking to a budget, eliminating debt and building—at least initially—a $1,000 emergency fund.

“Financial fitness is the key to retirement savings success and Dave Ramsey’s SmartDollar is a proven program that works,” says John Blossom, CEO of Alliance Benefit Group-Illinois. “We are proud to be able to deliver this great program to plan sponsors across Illinois, whether they are clients of ABG Retirement Plan Services or not.”
