Client FAQs

How do I pick up where I left off?

If at any point throughout the account opening process you lose connection or need to complete the account opening at a later time, exit the service and an email will be sent to you with a link to pick up where you left off. Please note, for your security this email is valid for 7 days. If your email has expired, simply return to the website and click “Forgot Password.”


How do I fund my account?

Please open the Funding Instructions document from your Resource Center.

Why do you require my bank account Information?

Connecting your bank account during the account opening process allows you to easily transfer money to and from your account. You can schedule transfers directly from your dashboard. Your information is securely stored at all times.

How does the eSignature process work?

The Docusign system is used to verify all eSignatures during the account opening process. You will first complete an identification check to verify you are the one signing the forms. Once complete, you will have the opportunity to review the information directly from the online forms. You can make adjustments to the forms if needed, and click on the yellow “Next” tab on the left side of your screen to move to the next page. Next, click where prompted to initial or sign, adopt or draw a signature on the screen, and select “Adopt and or Sign”.

How do I upload a statement into Docusign?

If you selected to transfer from an existing investment account, you will need to upload a current statement once you get to the signature portion of the account opening. Click on the paperclip image, within Docusign, stating “Upload Statement,” select the file from your computer, and click upload.

Why does my account say “Pending” when I try to login?

How do I set up Contributions and Withdrawals?

How do I change my Investment Plan?

Login to your dashboard and navigate to the “Adjust Plan” tab. Adjust the inputs (Savings Amount, Retirement/Withdraw Age) and the future cash follow projection map on the left of your screen will automatically update.
