To attract customers and assets, Bank of America Merrill Lynch is offering employers a free tool, Financial Wellness Monitor, to help them gauge employees' success at saving for retirement within a 401(k) plan.

The tool calculates an overall "financial wellness score" indicating to employers whether their workers are exhibiting behaviors within their 401(k) plan accounts that may lead to successful long-term savings.
