get at (?)


I have some question on the bold part below:

Keep some money in an account where you can get at it easily to pay bills.

  1. In this sentence, “get at” is a right expression?
  2. “It” means, I hink, “some money”. Then I think the sentence is good enough without “at”. What do you think?

Thanks in advance,

  1. Yes, “get at” is the correct expression. It means “get access to”.
  2. Yes, “it” means “some money”. The sentence is better with “at” included.
