Saving With Goals

Saving With Goals



When you make a Goal, you may have the option of setting the money aside instantly or saving over time.

If the Goal is for a larger amount than your Safe-to-Spend, or you’re creating a Protected Goal, you’ll automatically be prompted to save over time. This article has all the details on how saving over time works!

When are funds moved into my Goal?

It's up to you! You can fund your save-over-time Goals based on a custom funding schedule. Check out our Making Goals article for all the steps to set up and use a funding schedule.

Funds will only be moved into your Goal if there's enough money in your Safe-to-Spend. If your Safe-to-Spend isn't high enough to cover your daily Goal contributions, we'll automatically pause the Goal, and automatically start saving again when your Safe-to-Spend increases.

What if I fall behind?

If you fall behind on a Goal (either because you paused it, or your Safe-to-Spend wasn't enough to cover the daily contributions), we'll try to automatically recalculate your daily contributions so you can still complete the Goal on time.

You can also catch up by transferring funds from your Safe-to-Spend to the Goal; more on that option below!

Pausing a Goal

You can pause an in-progress Goal; if you do, any funds will remain in the Goal, but we won't automatically move money from your Safe-to-Spend into the Goal. To do this, just click on the in-progress Goal, and then click Pause Goal. Using goals 7
