Put your savings on autopilot.

We know we need to save more—and the stats confirm it. Nearly 46% of consumers say they would not be able to pay for an emergency that costs $400.1

By building up your savings account balance, you’ll be better prepared when an emergency strikes. You can handle an unexpected expense instead of having to skip other bills or borrow money. If you have little or no savings, start with a goal of saving $500, and then build from there.

Set Up Automatic Transfers in the Mobile App

Save money automatically

It’s important to make saving a habit. That means start ASAP, save regularly and then let your savings grow over time. Set up recurring transfers from your checking account into your savings account to simplify your savings. Saving just $1 a day will get you $365 in 1 year.

Set up automatic savings in digital banking in three easy steps:

  1. Go to pay & transfer and select the create & view tab.
  2. Click the schedule button, select your savings account as the recipient from the drop-down menu, and fill in the payment amount and date.
  3. Select the recurring button. Follow the prompts until you see the success notification.

Remember to track and monitor your checking account balance. When the automatic transfer comes out of your checking account, be sure that you have enough money remaining in your checking account to pay for upcoming payments so you don’t overspend. You can always go in and cancel a transfer to your savings if necessary.

Then, get back to your automatic savings habit so you can save seamlessly. Experience peace of mind, knowing you have a safety net when needed.
