General Questions

What is Brigit?

Brigit is a financial service that provides you with a cash safety net when you have a low bank balance. When we predict that you won’t have enough money to cover upcoming expenses, we will send you up to $250. Once you receive a paycheck or enough income to pay Brigit back, only then are the funds sent back to Brigit.

Why did you launch Brigit?

We understand that sometimes people need to bridge the gap between paychecks. We’re tired of seeing them lose their hard-earned money to bank fees and predatory lenders. We built Brigit as a simple, transparent, and responsible solution to genuinely help people with money during their time of need.

How do I sign up for Brigit?

Brigit is currently available for free for download on the Apple and Google Play app stores. Download Brigit here.

Who can use Brigit?

Brigit is for anyone who wants low balance protection on their primary bank account. You’re more likely to be approved for a cash safety net from Brigit if you have a regular income. Brigit is only available to U.S. residents over the age of 18 with a valid bank account.

Is Brigit secure?

Yes. Brigit uses strict security measures such as 256-bit encryption to protect the privacy and security of your information. This level of security is equal to, or even higher than, what many online banks use.

Will Brigit work with my bank?

We partner with over 12,000 other banks and credit unions. If your bank does not show up as an option when you are trying to link your bank account, then we currently do not have a partnership with this bank. To make any requests for banks we should partner with, please send your bank name to info@hellobrigit.com.

What is Brigit’s Bank Fee Calculator?

The Bank Fee Calculator shows you a breakdown of all hidden fees you have paid to your bank – including Overdraft fees, ATM fees, and Maintenance fees. The average person pays over $300 in bank fees annually and doesn’t even know about it. Imagine if you could save those bank fees for yourself! Here’s a link to the Bank Fee Calculator: https://hellobrigit.com/bank-fees.
