Wysh can now offer high-yield savings accounts bundled with no-cost life insurance to serve America’s underserved communities
AUSTIN, TX (October 5, 2023)— Helix by Q2 (NYSE: QTWO), an award-winning, cloud-native core purpose-built for embedded finance, today announced that Wysh, a bold innovator in the field of financial protection, can now offer its new high-yield savings account with embedded micro life insurance to its customers through Helix’s embedded finance solution. Savings+, Wysh’s new product, couples high-yield savings with life insurance without the need for underwriting and works to help underserved communities gain insurance protection at no cost.
Wysh’s dedication to serving underprivileged Americans has resulted in the launch of this new high-yield savings account paired with no-cost life insurance. Savings+ offers a 4.00 percent Annual Percentage Yield rate* and can unlock up to $10,000 in no-cost life insurance**. Account holders need no medical underwriting to receive the life insurance and there are no minimums, no fees, and no lock-ins. Savings+ offers peace of mind for account holders whose beneficiaries would receive up to an additional 10 percent of life insurance value on top of their savings account balance in the form of a life insurance payout.
“Savings+ expands financial protection to those historically left out, offering both growth and peace of mind. It’s more than an account; it’s a symbol of our promise to provide financial protection for all,” said Alex Matjanec, founder of Wysh. “We’re grateful to partner with Helix by Q2 to bring Savings+ to all Americans. As the first solution of its kind in America, Savings+ redefines the meaning of financial security, allowing growth in savings with an added layer of life insurance. It's a new era, and we're leading the way.”
