How to Withdraw from PiggyVest

You can withdraw any time on PiggyVest from your Flex wallet to your bank account or your pocket free of charge. Withdrawals typically take a few hours to a few business days to process, depending on the bank and the specific PiggyVest plan.

To withdraw funds from your PiggyVest account, here are the steps to follow:

  • Launch the PiggyVest app or visit the Piggyvest website and log in to your account.
  • Look for the “Withdraw” option from your Flex wallet. This is typically found in the menu or dashboard.
  • Generate a 2FA OTP and an OTP will be sent to your phone number linked to your PiggyVest account.
  • Now, enter the amount of money you want to withdraw. Ensure that you meet any minimum withdrawal criteria and that the withdrawal does not exceed your available balance.
  • Enter the withdrawal details, including the bank account you want the funds transferred.
  • Look out for any withdrawal fees or penalties, especially if you are withdrawing from a plan with a lock-in period, like Safelock.
  • Once everything looks good, just click on “Withdraw Now” to submit your withdrawal request.

Before submitting, please review all the details to ensure they are correct. Keep in mind that the specific process may vary slightly based on updates to the platform or specific features you are using.

PiggyVest Withdrawal Windows and Charges

PiggyVest typically allows users to withdraw for free on specific dates predetermined by the platform. These are known as the free withdrawal dates. Withdrawals on any other date might incur a penalty, except for withdrawals from the Flex account, which usually can be done at any time without penalties.

Always confirm the withdrawal amount and ensure it complies with minimum or maximum withdrawal limits. Also, review any potential charges that might apply to your withdrawal, especially if you’re withdrawing outside the designated free periods.

Note that certain savings options may have specific withdrawal windows or days when you can withdraw without incurring a charge. Withdrawals outside these periods might attract fees.

Charges for Withdrawals Outside Free Windows

Flex Account Withdrawals: Usually free, withdrawals from the Flex account are possible whenever you choose. More flexible access to money is possible with the Flex account because it doesn’t have withdrawal fees like other savings plans do.

Safelock, Target Savings, and Piggybank: Withdrawals made outside of the specified free withdrawal periods may be subject to fees for other products such as Safelock, Target Savings, and Piggybank. Specifically, safelock is intended for fixed savings; withdrawals before the maturity date may be prohibited or subject to heavy fines.

Penalties: PiggyVest may impose a penalty if you make a withdrawal outside of the free withdrawal periods. Usually, this fine is expressed as a percentage of the money you are withdrawing. By discouraging withdrawals before scheduled times, the goal is to strengthen the saving habit.

For specific questions about withdrawal windows, charges, or any issues with your account, reaching out to PiggyVest’s customer support is advisable.

How do I get OTP for Piggyvest withdrawal?
