NASHVILLE, Tenn. — SmartDollar is helping Costco employees take control of their personal finances by offering SmartDollar as an employee benefit. SmartDollar is the premier financial wellness program for corporations and businesses to equip their employees to better handle their finances so they can plan for the future and retire with dignity.
