Your top 3 need-to-knows
How do I open a Protected Goals Account?
First, open a Simple Account—free online checking + budgeting in one! Then open a Protected Goals Account that lives alongside it. (Kinda like a motorcycle sidecar, but for your savings!) If you’re already a Simple customer, here’s how to get started!
How do I spend money from my Protected Goals Account?
Just use your Simple app to instantly transfer funds from your Protected Goals Account into your free Simple Account any time you want to spend what you’ve saved! Until then, your stash is collecting interest and protected from spending...because it’s in a Protected Goals Account (see what we did there?).
How is my Protected Goals Account different from a savings account?
Since it’s a high-yield checking account, there are no limits to how often you can take money out. Plus, you can use Simple’s automated budgeting tools to move money into your Protected Goals Account a little bit at a time to grow your savings effortlessly.
