Company’s Latest Creative Shows Consumers’ Feelings of Freedom and the Ability to Live Life to the Fullest When They are Financially Secure

17 May 2021

RADNOR, Pa. (BUSINESS WIRE), May 17, 2021 - Americans recognize the value of financial security, but many are still on a journey to achieve it. In fact, while eight out of 10 adults say they cannot achieve their life’s goals without financial security, only two out of five U.S. adults say they currently feel financially secure — despite it being a priority to 87% of them, according to a new Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) and CivicScience survey. As people strive to avoid debt and add to their savings, Lincoln Financial launched its new advertising campaign today entitled “This is Financial Security,” which celebrates powerful moments where consumers exemplify feelings of freedom and their ability to live life to the fullest.

“While everyone has their own unique definition of financial security, we want to inspire Americans to think about how to achieve the future they envision, for themselves and their families,” said Jamie Ohl, executive vice president, president, Workplace Solutions, head of Operations and Brand, Lincoln Financial Group. “This campaign helps share the stories that so many Americans are living today, while reinforcing how our products and solutions can help provide that feeling of financial security.” 

The campaign features relevant stories that illustrate how financial security can allow people to realize what matters most to them, whether it is travel, gatherings with family and friends, or a home renovation project — but also reinforcing these visions are within reach. The ads are featured across multiple platforms including television, social media, digital, podcasts, radio and print. View the campaign introductory spot for “This is Financial Security” here.

“When you have a strong financial foundation, you feel more empowered to adventure beyond it,” said Angela Laubmeier, vice president, head of Advertising and Sponsorships for Lincoln Financial Group. “With this campaign, we are striving to encourage people to boldly pursue their passions, regardless of their stage of life.”

Lincoln Financial worked with its agency of record FCB New York on the “This is Financial Security” campaign, which replaces “Responsibility of Love.” FCB New York’s relationship with Lincoln Financial began in 2015.

“The idea of achieving financial security hasn’t changed, but exactly what it means to people has,” said Stu Mair, executive vice president, executive creative director, FCB New York. “We wanted this new campaign platform to capture and redefine financial security with warmth and humanity, ultimately empowering people with a feeling of freedom to pursue the things they’re most passionate about.”
