What’s New With HelloWallet? October 2014

Peer Comparisons Are Here!

Peer Comparison Financial Wellness

Need a little motivation to increase your Score? You can now see how your Financial Wellness Score stacks up against your peers. Log in to the HelloWallet web app to see your Score in comparison to other HelloWallet members in your same age and income group, and check your Score tab for more information on how your score compares. When we first tested this feature, we found that HelloWallet members with access to the peer score increased their own Score more in one month than those who did not.

Additional changes:

  • Updates to the Income Summary
    • Easier method for adding bonuses and other streams of income
    • More customization for specifying contributions per income stream
    • Now collapsable on the Plan tab of the Budget and the Profile page
  • Improved transaction memos – cleaner and easier to read
  • Android users now have access to all HelloWallet Insights on their mobile app
  • Simple bank is now supported in HelloWallet!
