A Step-by-Step Guide
Set it up once and we take care of the rest!
Starting With The Basics
Like any good relationship, we need to get to know you
To create and setup your personal FDIC insured ChangEd savings account, we need some personal info. Enter your legal name, date of birth, phone number and address. Your info will never be used for anything else other than setting up your account.
Next, add your student loan info
Link all loans directly and securely
Using your loan servicer login credentials, securely link all of your loans to ChangEd. Once connected, choose which account you want to pay down first. It's that easy. We cover all student loan servicers and offer a manually way to add lenders that aren't covered with direct linking.
Then, add accounts you want to save from
Securely link your bank and spending accounts
Once connected, select any accounts that you wish to have analyzed for round ups. (You can choose multiple accounts to round up from). Then, select your preferred funding account for ChangEd to make transfers from. ChangEd analyzes round ups from multiple accounts and will transfer from one selected funding account.
Setup is that easy!
