'Class of 2015' is eligible for a $500 mutual fund investment through Voya Born to Save® program -- but must be enrolled by December 18, 2015
According to survey, one-third of new parents would prefer a financial gift for their child instead of traditional presents this holiday season
NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), is reminding parents of all babies1 born in the U.S. on October 19, 2015 that they still have time to receive a $500 Voya mutual fund investment2 for their child.
As part of the company's second annual Voya Born to Save® campaign, every baby who arrived on this special day — the Monday of National Save for Retirement Week3 — is eligible for Voya's complimentary offer. But families must enroll before the December 18, 2015 deadline.
"We introduced the Voya Born to Save campaign as a way to help consumers think differently about their retirement," said Voya Financial Chief Marketing Officer, Ann Glover. "Our $500 investment offer underscores a simple, but very important point — that it's never too early to start saving for the future. The campaign also reinforces Voya's commitment to helping families get ready to retire better by planning, investing and protecting their savings."
Add the Gift of Financial Security to the Holiday Shopping List
The message behind Voya's program resonated with many families in 2014, and a recent survey4 of more than 1,000 Americans further demonstrates the value of establishing financial priorities early in life. According to Voya's findings, nearly one-third (32%) of new parents hope their children will receive money this holiday season instead of traditional gift items, such as toys and clothes.
"Moms and dads face a number of competing economic priorities, and one of them is helping set their children up for future financial success," added Glover. "So it's no surprise that many parents would prefer family and friends to forgo the typical holiday items and consider a financial gift for their child instead. For those who are eligible for the Voya Born to Save offer, we want to make sure families don't overlook our special gift to them."
