Frequently Asked Questions

Where are the fees taken from?

Fees are taken right from your Betterment account. No action is required on your part, and we'll never charge fees if you don't have a balance.

Is there a fee for a $0 balance?

No, you will never be charged for an account with a $0 balance.

Which accounts are included in determining my qualification for the Premium plan?

The minimum balance requirement for this plan is based on your combined balance across your IRA and taxable accounts, joint accounts, and trusts at Betterment. If you also have a 401(k) account through Betterment For Business, that account is subject to a separate fee schedule and is not included in the minimum balance requirement.

Are there discounts over a certain balance?

Yes, receive a 0.10% discount on the portion of your household balance above $2M

  • On the Digital plan, you would pay 15 bps for the portion of the balance above $2M.
  • On the Premium plan, you would pay 30 bps for the portion of the balance above $2M.

Are there deposit, withdrawals, or ETF fees?

All portfolios are subject to fund level fees. Learn more about each fund fee here. Our annual fee covers everything else. You are not charged any additional trade or transaction fees.

Can I cancel at any time?

Yes, you can cancel at any time. Fees will be prorated, so if you leave before a month is over, you will only pay for the time you had a balance.
