Betterment only supports joint accounts with rights of survivorship. This means that upon the death of either owner of the joint account, the ownership of the account goes to the surviving joint account holder. Both holders of the joint account have full access to the joint account and are able to view the account, create goals, transfer funds, and change allocations.
