Good Morning Investor, Your Betterment Account Has Been Suspended

It may not have been those exact words, but the message was clear. Thousands of new Betterment Accounts were being at an alarming rate. The reason?

Some were not given any reason at all while others were being told that their identity had raised several red flags. Even after sending the required documents and jumping through the Betterment hoops to prove one's identity accounts remained suspended.

  • It did not take long for the Betterment name to become tarnished along with the 'avoid like the plague message' to would-be investors.
  • As of January 2022, the only response from Betterment was that they were temporarily suspending checking account applications and things should be back to normal by February 1, 2022.

Investors Are a Fickle Bunch

It doesn't take long for a situation as negative as this to ward off the potential new financial investment customer's that up until this event had their attention turned to Betterment. And the Betterment customers already established were jumping off the Betterment platform like rats on a sinking ship.

Account suspensions and the sudden loss of loyal customers sent Betterment scrambling for an answer to calm the storm.

Whether you were a new customer that made an initial deposit of $10 or a faithful customer with thousands on the balance sheet the answers were;

  • Your account has been suspended for suspected fraud and no money can be refunded.
  • Your account is still under review and no money can be moved.
  • Your account was suspended due to irregularities in your financial background.
