Voice of the Customer Insight: Do you have a Financial Plan?

ING asked the question of our retirement plan investor customers in for-profit, education, healthcare and government markets. 859 answered, giving us insights at the XX confidence level of +/-XX% about planning activity overall, and by age band, gender and employer sector Despite the fact that these investors do currently have some sort of retirement savings (via the employer-sponsored ING plan), most do not have a formal, written financial plan. Only a third report any sort of plan, whether a formal, written plan or an informal plan. Two thirds, or 67% have no plan whatsoever. Living Without a…

Just 10 percent of women and six percent of men report having following an informal plan. Combined, 30% of women report some sort of plan, and 37% of men report the same. Still, the unlikelihood of having a financial plan does not seem to be strongly affected by investor gender: Both men and women are less likely to have a financial plan than to have undertaken a planning process that could prove beneficial to their overall long-term financial health and goals. Or, at least give them a roadmap.

No. It could be that investors who do not have a financial plan do not recognize the value in having that plan. Only 8% say that they intend to create one. Again, given that any sort of financial plan -- formal or informal, advisor- aided or online/electronic – can be an essential element in helping individuals strive toward achieving the spectrum of their financial goals, a potential gap / opportunity exists for employers, advisors and financial providers in helping people understand the importance of planning for their goals, and giving them accessible, clear tools to help them do that.

Nearly half – 47% report that they do have some sort of financial plan. (Which still leaves just over half without a plan.) Least likely to have a plan – and by a wide margin? Employees / investors in the private / for-profit sector. Healthcare and Government workers fall in the middle range, with roughly a third or more reporting a plan. Still, in no employer sector, are investors more likely to have a financial plan than not to have one.

Under $10,000, however, participants will $5,000 or less in their accounts are slightly more likely to have a plan than those with $5,000 - $9,000. For higher account balances, however, the likelihood of having a plan increases as account balance increases, with half of participants with $50,000 or more in their accounts likely to have a plan.
