Balance Shield alerts and Balance Shield Cashouts


To help our community outsmart overdrafts, Earnin introduced Balance Shield Alerts and Balance Shield Cashouts.

By turning on Balance Shield Alerts, customers will be informed via push notification when their bank balance falls below an amount they can specify, ranging from $0-$400. If their bank balance falls below $100, they can also enable Balance Shield Cashouts, which will preemptively cash out up to $100 of their earnings.

Like the rest of our app, Balance Shield Alerts is free to our community though tips are very much appreciated.


Please keep in mind that the amount we’re able to send to your bank account depends on both your Daily & Pay Period Maxes and amount of available earnings. 


So be sure to keep hours available by adding your electronic timesheets regularly (or by keeping your app permissions and location on if your earnings are added automatically).
