Bank of America has announced that more than 10 million clients have used Life Plan since its launch in late 2020. Available on the Bank of America mobile app and online banking platform, Life Plan is a first-of-its-kind, personalized digital experience that enables clients to set and track near- and long-term goals based on their life priorities, and better understand and act on steps toward achieving them. Clients who have used Life Plan have added more than $55 billion to their Bank of America accounts, as of December 2022.
“Our clients appreciate having an easy, intuitive way to set, track and adjust their financial goals,” said David Tyrie, Chief Digital Officer, and Chief Marketing Officer at Bank of America. “When we launched Life Plan more than two years ago, we did so to provide each client with personalized insights into their financial goals in our app and online, helping them keep track and giving them confidence for what’s ahead.”
Currently, the top goals set by Life Plan users include Budget and Start Saving (33% of users), Improve Credit (28%), Save for a Large Purchase (21%), Buying a Home (18%), and Travel (16%). This is the first time Travel has appeared as a top 5 goal in Life Plan.
Millennials and Gen Z have created the greatest number of Life Plans, representing 63% of all plans created. Gen X and Baby Boomers make up 38% of users. Nearly half (42%) of Spanish-speaking digital users are engaging with Life Plan. Since launch, clients using Life Plan set up more than 2.3 million follow-up appointments with Bank of America financial specialists.
Life Plan’s 10 million user milestone comes at a time when clients’ use of digital capabilities are at record levels. More than 11.6 billion digital logins occurred in 2022 – a 10% year-over-year increase. In addition, last year, 33.5 million clients interacted with Erica, the first widely available AI-driven virtual financial assistant, and more than 18.2 million Bank of America clients actively used Zelle.
