How do I set up direct deposit?

You can choose to have your whole paycheck or a specific portion or amount directed to your RoarMoneySM account automatically, and you may receive your funds up to two days early1! To connect direct deposits from your employer or payroll provider, you can easily set it up in the MoneyLion app:

Step 1:  Tap the More button on the Accounts tab

Step 2: Select “Manage direct deposit” in the RoarMoney menu.

Step 3: Follow the prompts to select your employer and connect direct deposits.

Alternatively, you can also provide your employer or payer with your RoarMoney routing number and account number (you can find those in the MoneyLion app under “More”), so they can initiate it on their end. Many folks find it easy to log into their benefits, payroll, or HR website, such as ADP, and quickly enter their RoarMoney account information to set up direct deposits that way.

Last but not least, there is a paper form you can use! When you receive your MoneyLion Debit Mastercard® in the mail, there will be a direct deposit form included that you can give to your employer to make setting up direct deposit easy. If you lost the direct deposit form or don’t have it handy you can download a blank copy here.

Once you set up direct deposits, it may take up to three pay cycles for your checks to begin routing to your RoarMoney account and for benefits such as Instacash℠ and early paydays1 to unlock.
