Here's how we fix that.

This is Financial Care.

Brightside is the first and only comprehensive Financial Care solution. For employers, that means no more point solutions or complex integrations. For employees? On-demand access to financial experts and real solutions. This changes everything.


To a chatbot, debt looks like debt. To a human, it can look like someone who missed work because their car broke down, or like someone who fell victim to identity theft. Brightside’s expert Financial Assistants are real humans who can help your employees navigate real life.


Technology can’t replace humans, but it can help them accomplish more. Our Brightside app and integrated solutions let us provide more effective, customized support to more working families, around the clock.


Some employees want retirement planning, while others need emergency help to make rent. We have the product and partnerships to create the best solutions for each employee. Oh, and we don’t do kickbacks. We pass any referral fees we receive from our partners onto your employees.

This is what Financial Care means



Brightside users pay down debts in collections 5 times faster than their non-engaged co-workers.



Brightside user households save an average of $1,200 per year.



Brightside customers see a 41% reduction in turnover.
