Fidelity NetBenefits is available as an app for both Apple products and Android products ranging from tablets to phones, enabling users to stay up to date on their Fidelity accounts from anywhere. The two apps are functionally identical, and in 2015, they were the only branded apps specifically made for use with the Fidelity NetBenefits online finance initiative from Fidelity.
App users can examine their retirement account through the app's functions. They can also see connected figures such as health plans, stock investments and other financial information. Ready access to this information allows them to keep active custodianship over their financial well-being and to make fast decisions about changes to those accounts and investments.
Users can also make immediate contact with support staff in the Fidelity organization. This allows them to make changes to their accounts, solve technical issues and receive whatever form of support or advice they desire at any time, just by pressing a button.
The app contains quizzes and questionnaires which help to assess user readiness for programs such as retirement. These programs also offer links and information about how to better prepare for such financial milestones and how to begin building a portfolio that will allow users to manage their own affairs comfortably.
