Propel Your Self-Improvement Journey 

To start Self-Improvement Month on the right foot, take advantage of the Financial HeartbeatSM feature in the MoneyLion app. Knowing your score and reviewing your financial strengths and improvement areas can help you know where to focus and track your progress.

Financial Heartbeat: How It Works

To reach the Financial Heartbeat, swipe to the end of your mobile cards in the MoneyLion app until you see an animated heart icon and your Financial Heartbeat score. There you’ll be able to monitor four areas of your financial health — Save, Spend, Shield, and Score — and celebrate your progress with Strive.

  • Save: The Save icon measures savings health — how well you are prepared for expenses, both unexpected and planned. 
  • Spend: The Spend icon helps you keep spending in line with your income — a critical step for financial strength. 
  • Shield: The Shield icon helps you understand and organize your insurance needs and coverage. Step by step, they can build their Shield of protection.
  • Score: The Score icon encompasses credit score and overall credit health in terms of utilization and interest. 
  • Strive: The Strive icon keeps members motivated with badges and points for easy and big wins and positive financial steps. 

Together, these five scores add up to your total Financial Heartbeat score (1.0 to 10.0, with 10.0 as a perfect score). By providing feedback and reinforcement, the Financial Heartbeat reflects and validates the hard work you put into improving your financial health.
