Lifestyle Risk Calculator was developed in 2012, created with over 37 years of working in healthcare benefit management.

"The Problems"

  • Unhealthy behavior drives 80% of HealthCare needs
  • Being overweight and obese is the new norm
  • Our nation has a "Retirement Savings Crisis"

Lifestyle Choices that Drive HealthCare Costs

  • Obesity
  • Overweight
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Coffee
  • Soda
  • Energy Drinks
  • Recreational Drugs

"Retirement Crisis"

Senator Harkin wrote "The Retirement Crisis"

  • Half of all Americans have less than $10,000 in savings
  • The average 401(k) balance is $58,991

If we can effectively communicate the ills of unhealthy behavior, we will be able to self-motivate behavior change and shift monies spent on unhealthy behaviors to retirement plans.

 

"Health 2 Wealth Solution"

Example:  A person who is 25 years old and 50 pounds overweight, on average, spends $5.27 a day on extra food to maintain their weight with their current food choices (identified by the calculator).

Same person smoking 15 cigarettes a day, on average, spends $4.69 a day based on what they pay per pack.

Same person consumes 1 drink a day, on average, spends $4.00 a day based on their consumption habit.

This equates to $4,385.41 in annual, pre-tax dollars. When converted to a Qualified Retirement Plan, over $204,640.00 of new retirement savings for this 25 year old.
