About the Financial Planning Association (FPA®)

The Financial Planning Association (FPA®) connects those who need, support and deliver financial planning.

FPA believes that public service is an important part in building the financial planning profession and has a strong commitment to providing pro bono financial planning in times of disaster and to those in need.

Why is FPA involved with Plan for Your HealthSM?

Aetna and FPA have partnered on Plan for Your Health to educate consumers about the importance of health benefits planning and the relationship to personal financial health. FPA is involved because of their dedication to educating consumers about the value of financial planning.

Because the trend in health insurance is moving toward consumer choice, consumers will have the opportunity to take more responsibility for their health insurance/benefits choices. Our campaign seeks to provide consumers with the tools needed to guide their choices.
