About Earnin:

Earnin is a company building innovative solutions to some of the toughest financial problems facing people today. Our core tool, Cash Out, reframes the conversation around payday by giving people access to the money they’ve already earned.

Who we are:

We are rethinkers focused on inspiring fairness in the financial system. We consider the community to be part of our team because, in order to make lasting change, we need participation and input from all. 

The Pay it Forward Model

The world is a better place when we all help each other out. With Earnin’s services, people choose what they tip. Sometimes it’s more, sometimes it’s less. And sometimes community members pay it forward to support each other.

Our Tools:

  • Cash Out enables community members to get paid for the work they’ve already done - without having to wait for payday.
    • Balance Shield provides bank balance alerts to help community members monitor their bank account balance. We also offer the option to set up Balance Shield Cash Outs to help our members transfer money they’ve earned to their account to cover upcoming recurring withdrawals.
    • Health Aid reaches out to our community members’ medical providers to try to reduce their bill balance and/or find them a budget-friendly payment plan.
  • Cash Back Rewards help our community members find cash back when they shop or dine at thousands of participating stores and restaurants. 

Why we do it:

A majority of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and spend more on overdraft fees than fresh veggies. It’s clear that the current financial system doesn’t work for us. We’re building a future with financial fairness.
