To add a checking account, we need to make sure you own that account by having you confirm two small verification deposits/withdrawals which will be sent via ACH. After entering your bank account information, you will then complete the following steps to confirm your bank account with Betterment:
- Log into your checking account at your bank.
- Find the two small amounts under $1.00 we have deposited and immediately withdrawn from your account – please note, you may have to wait up to two business days to see these deposits.
- Log into your account at Betterment.com.
- On the Transfer tab, in the Confirm Two Small Deposits window, tell us the values of the two random deposits in your account.
- That's it, you're ready to start investing!
