Frequently asked questions

Have questions We have answers.

What kind of account am I opening with EarlyBird?

EarlyBird helps parents launch a type of custodial investment account known as an UGMA (Universal Gifts to Minors Act). These are flexible accounts that will be transferred to your child when they are of age (18 or 21, depending on your state of residence). As opposed to a 529, which can only go toward education-related expenses, funds from an UGMA can support any of your little one's big dreams, from travel to college to homeownership.

What can I invest in with EarlyBird?

We’ve set EarlyBird up so that your child can have a smart, simple, and modern portfolio. That means the option to invest in ETF-based portfolios and crypto, all tailored to you and your child’s goals, timeline, and risk tolerance.

How are my accounts and investments protected?

We’re committed to providing you and your family with the highest levels of security. Our trusted partner and custodian Apex Clearing Corporation, a third-party SEC registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA and Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), holds all investment accounts. This means the investments in your account are protected up to $500,000 total.

We also use multi-factor authentication, automatic logouts, ID verification to prevent unauthorized access, and 256-bit SSL encryption to protect accounts.

What are the fees? How does pricing work?

In celebration of your growing family, your EarlyBird Baby Fund is free until your little one arrives and their gifts are invested. After birth, there is a $1/month fee for each child.

For any family members or friends sending gifts, there is a $2 processing fee per gift.
