Fidelity's Accessibility Value Statement
Office of Customer Accessibility
Fidelity Investments is committed to ensuring that our products and services are accessible and usable by people of all abilities. This includes websites, email communications, online applications, documents, and live customer interactions over the phone or through face-to-face meetings.
© 2019 FMR LLC. All rights reserved.
- For all digital communications, Fidelity strives to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) at Level AA as standard, and to provide appropriate channels of communication for feedback about accessibility from the public on Fidelity.com and NetBenefits.com.
- For all paper communications, Fidelity strives to provide alternative format statements like large print, braille, and audio.
- For all live interactions, whether face-to-face, over the phone, or on chat Fidelity strives to accommodate customer preferences for assistive technologies. Customer-facing associates are prohibited from refusing service to a customer based on a disability or a preference for an assistive technology.
- For all Fidelity employees, we strongly encourage the completion of a voluntary 12-minute disability etiquette training so that every person has empathy and compassion for another’s communication preference. Additionally, all employees are asked to share accessibility-related feedback to the Office of Customer Accessibility at OCA@FMR.com. We also recommend familiarizing yourself with the reasonable accommodations for disability policy.
- Associates in Procurement and Vendor Management functions strive to ensure that products and services provided by Electronic and Information Technology (EIT) vendors are accessible to our associates and customers who prefer or rely upon assistive technologies like screen readers and video relay services.
- Our Corporate Real Estate Partners strive to complete regular reviews of our physical facilities to assess accessibility and universal design principles. This includes Fidelity phone centers, corporate offices, and branches in the United States.

Tips for using your browser more effectively
Use the most current version of your web browser
The latest versions of browsers (ChromeTM, Safari®, Firefox®, Internet Explorer®) perform best with our websites.
Maximize your browser window
This will help you see as much content and functionality as possible. Our websites are responsive, which means our content and layout adjust to fit the width of your browser window as it changes. (Some content may reorient itself or get hidden as you resize the width of your browser window.)
Maximize your browser in one of these ways:
- Use browser buttons to minimize, maximize, or close your browser window. On PCs, the Maximize button is in the upper right of your browser window. On Macs, the Maximize button is green and is in the upper left of your browser window.
- You can also use the keyboard. On a PC, hold down the Alt key while you press the spacebar. Then press the "X" key to select Maximize. On a Mac, hold down the Control and Command keys while you press the "F" key to view in full screen. On some versions of Macs, you may need to set up a specific keyboard shortcut to do this.
Zoom in to make reading easier
Your browser Zoom feature enlarges or shrinks all content, including text, images, and videos. "Zooming in" is useful if you're having trouble reading a page. "Zooming out" is useful if you want to see more of a web page at a time or reduce the amount of vertical scrolling.
- On a PC, you can zoom in by holding down the Control (Ctrl) key and pressing the plus key (+) as many times as you want. Zoom out by holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the minus key (-).
- On a Mac, you can zoom in by holding down the Command (Cmd) key and pressing the plus key (+) as many times as you want. Zoom out by holding down the Cmd key and pressing the minus key (-).
- You can also hold the Ctrl (PC) or Cmd (Mac) key and scroll the mouse wheel to zoom in and out.
- Press Ctrl (PC) or Cmd (Mac) and the zero key (0) to return your zoom level back to the default, which is 100%.
