What is Onward?
Onward is a not-for-profit employer-sponsored benefit program that promotes saving, responsible borrowing, and financial education. Unlike most 401Ks or savings plans, Onward allows employees to save for more immediate goals. If an emergency occurs, instead of seeing savings washed away or borrowing from an employer, a relative, or a payday lender, employees can choose a low interest loan through Onward. In addition, employees get access to financial advice, helpful resources, and discounts.
