We want you to be financially happy and healthy — now and for years to come. And strong savings is a big part of that.

Luckily, opening an online savings account is almost as simple as when you used to drop money into your piggy bank.

What are you saving for?

There are so many good reasons to open a savings account; some people have multiple savings accounts for different goals.

Some common reasons for you to save include:

  • Life milestones: Be ready for the big moments in life, whether you’re getting married, buying your first home, growing your family or sending your teenager off to college.
  • Emergencies: Be prepared for unexpected expenses like car repairs, medical bills or job loss with an emergency fund.
  • Starting a business: Want to make that side hustle a full-time gig? It can really help if you have enough savings to cover your expenses during the period between quitting your job and making a profit in your new business venture.
  • Retirement: It’s never too early to save for retirement. The more you can save now, the more you’ll be able to enjoy when you’re ready to retire.
