How Ayco financial coaching works
On average, your phone coaching session will last around 35 minutes. You may want or need more than one call with a coach. In this case, you can set up a follow-up call to continue the discussion or address another planning topic with the same coach.
It’s a good idea to have your most recent paystub and Annual Enrollment information handy prior to speaking with your coach. You can also upload personal documents to share with your financial coach through the Vault on Ayco360.
Ayco’s financial coaches are required to have a four-year college degree and are encouraged to pursue an advanced degree or certification as part of their development plan, such as a JD, CPA, MBA, or CFP® designation. Each coach spends about 30 days a year in training.
Your spouse or partner can participate too
Once you contact Ayco and provide your permission, your spouse or partner may use the phone coaching service with you or on your behalf. Note: Your access to Ayco financial counseling will end if you leave PayPal.
