Finally, a cash account that’s built for you.
We get it: money and its terms can be confusing. We’re here to simplify with answers to some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to our Cash Account.
Will I be charged any fees?
There are no account fees for the Cash Account. And you don’t pay any fees when you use one of our 19,000 fee-free ATMs – our in-app ATM Finder will show you the location of the closest ones. If you use ATMs outside our network, fees may apply.
Why is my rate subject to change?
The APY on the Cash Account is dependent on the federal funds rate. We move your funds to partner banks who accept and maintain deposits and pay a rate based on the fed rate. As rates move, we will do everything in our power to keep our rates as competitive as possible. Learn more.
How do I pay my bills with the Cash Account?
Your Cash Account comes with account and routing numbers, which you can use to pay credit card bills, rent, mortgage and more if the payment platform accepts that method. If you request a debit card, you can use the 16-digit card number to pay your bills. Or, for bills that must be paid by check, you can send a physical check directly from your Cash Account.
Can I get checking features on my Joint Cash Account or Trust Cash Account?
Checking features aren’t currently available for these account types — but we’re working on adding them soon.
