Don’t want to spend it? Lock it! Saving for a  big purchase? Lock it!

The Locked Savings feature on HerVest is a type of savings plan that requires you to keep your money in your account for a certain period, known as the “lock-in period.” During this time, you cannot withdraw your money. Its purpose is to assist users in maintaining financial discipline and avoiding temptation.

Locked savings plans can help you to save for a specific goal. For instance, If you need to save a certain amount of money for a car, land or a wedding, the Locked savings plan can help you to stay on track and reach your goal on time.


Accessibility: The Locked feature is simple to use. You only need to provide a name, set a savings amount, and specify the duration of your plan.

Interest: This feature offers upfront interest, allowing you to access your interest in their purse account after funding your plan.

Payment: You can fund your plan using funds from your HerVest Purse or debit cards.

Flexible duration options: You can select a duration that suits your needs, with a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 1 year. Withdrawals are deposited into your purse accounts, and you cannot withdraw funds until the plan reaches its maturity date.
