Financial Wellness

Welcome! Employee Services is pleased to provide Financial Wellness programming and resources to faculty and staff.

We follow the National Wellness Institute's definition of wellness:

Wellness is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.

And we believe that Financial Wellness has several components:

  • your objective economic status
  • your subjective perception of your economic status
  • your financial behaviors
  • your satisfaction with your financial situation

We aim to bring you resources that help you improve or maintain your financial wellness, as described holistically by those four aspects.

Check back frequently as we increase our offerings over the next year, or sign up to receive announcements and resources via email.


Expert Guidance

Did you know that as a CU employee you can meet with a financial professional from one of the university's investment sponsors? You can ask about anything from everyday budgeting to retirement planning.

You and your colleagues can also request a financial seminar on a variety of topics, brought directly to your department.


Life Events

Our newest section of the website offers education and guidance to navigate the financial terrain of major life events like moving in together or having children.


Benefits 101

Please check out our Benefits 101 section for an overview of common employer-provided benefits. This information is designed for all audiences to learn about benefits, not solely CU benefits-eligible employees. We hope our non-benefits-eligible employees and graduating students will find this information useful as well.


Other Resources

In the Coming Soon section, you can vote for which Web resources you'd like to see developed next.
