Acorns introduces new premium subscription

Acorns, the savings and investing app, has introduced a new premium subscription designed for families.

The new plan costs $9 a month and offers several new features including an investment account for kids and access to GoHenry, a debit card and financial education app for 6-18-year olds.

Subscribers get access to $10,000 in free life insurance and a complimentary will.

The subscription also includes live Q&A sessions with financial experts and premium educational content to help adults learn how to invest responsibly.

“We know that people who receive financial advice and support earlier in life are likely to have better financial outcomes. At Acorns, we are passionate about looking out for the financial well-being of the up-and-coming, and that starts with young people and families. Our pioneering Premium Tier is where we provide financial wellness for the whole family to unlock compound growth at every life stage. That’s the key to building wealth.” – Noah Kerner, Acorns CEO.
