Advances or Floats
FloatMe allows qualified users to access “Floats,” a service that enables you to obtain earned wages prior to payday, also referred to as Advances. While FloatMe helps you to anticipate income shortfall by providing you with an Advance for the hours you’ve worked, and analyze when you can save, you may also request an Advance without enrolling in FloatMe’s services. To do so, you must be employed and have worked by providing us with a document showing your earned but unpaid hours, that includes the name of your employer. If you fulfill these preliminary criteria, you may request up to $50 of your then available net earned wages for the pay period at the time of your request.
You must also fulfill some additional requirements provided below:
First, you must have an account in your name, at a United States-based bank or credit union that issues you a debit card (some types of prepaid debit cards also work). If you have a joint account, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to (a) bind the absent account holder; and (b) enter into these Terms independently.
Second, you must have a current source of income that you regularly deposit into this account.
Requesting an Advance does not require a check of your credit score.
There are a few reasons we might not be able to let you obtain an Advance. These may include, but are not limited to:
If you do not get paid by direct deposit.
If you have previously received an Advance but not repaid it.
If your bank account is currently or was very recently overdrawn or otherwise not in good standing.
If you recently changed the routing of your direct deposit paychecks.
To request an Advance without enrolling in FloatMe, you may send a written request by certified mail to: FloatMe, Corp. ATTN: Advance Request to 110 E Houston St. 7th Floor, San Antonio, TX 78205. The request must include your first and last name, your phone number and email address, your bank account number and routing number associated with your FloatMe account and into which you receive direct deposit, a copy of your most recent paystub verifying the hours worked and associated earnings, and your work schedule for the current pay period. Failure to provide correct and complete information may make it impossible for FloatMe to provide you with an Advance. In addition to the information contained in this request, you must fulfill all other eligibility requirements for receiving an Advance as outlined above, and may be requested to provide additional documents and methods of verification. Any Advance you receive will be recouped by FloatMe directly from your bank account on your next scheduled payday. We do not charge any interest for this Advance.
FloatMe, Corp. charges $1.99 per month to access its account monitoring, Overdraft notification services, the ability to make savings contributions to a custodial bank account held by FloatMe for the benefit of (FBO) You, the User, and to maintain an active connection to your bank account. FloatMe requires a connected bank account or debit / credit card for payment of our $1.99 fee, which is billed the sooner of 30 days or your first paycheck after initiating membership. If payment attempt is declined, FloatMe reserves the right to cancel your account at its sole discretion. You are responsible to notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not want to renew by requesting account deletion. You may also access FloatMe Advances without paying a membership fee by emailing . See information above for further instructions. On any deposit advance request such as FloatMe Advances, FloatMe, Corp. has optional fees to expedite the disbursement of funds.
FloatMe Emergency Stash
FloatMe Emergency Stash is also part of FloatMe's services and is designed to help you save money. To utilize FloatMe Emergency Stash, you must have created a FloatMe account and connected the bank account where you receive your direct deposit paycheck. Through our mobile app, FloatMe will work to uncover opportunities for saving, subject to the user’s consent of electing for FloatMe to automatically facilitate this service, or the user manually electing to elect when to save.
FloatMe will keep track of these funds and will transfer from your Bank Account to a custodial bank account held by FloatMe for the benefit of its customers (the “Emergency Stash”) on your next scheduled payday. See “Payment Authorization” Section below for additional information regarding this transfer.
You may not use the funds in the Emergency Stash to make purchases, withdraw cash, transfer funds to third parties, or for any other purpose. In addition, please note that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds in the Emergency Stash. You irrevocably transfer and assign to FloatMe any and all rights that you may have to any interest that may accrue on funds held in the Emergency Stash. This assignment applies only to interest earned on the funds held in the Emergency Stash, and nothing in these Terms grants FloatMe any rights to the principal of the funds held in the Emergency Stash. Any funds moved to the Emergency Stash will remain there until you instruct FloatMe to transfer any or all of your funds from the Emergency Stash to your Bank Account by submitting a request within the FloatMe app. We will generally transfer the requested funds from the Emergency Stash to your Bank Account within two business days of when we receive your request. It is important to know the amount of available funds in the Emergency Stash before instructing us to transfer funds from the Emergency Stash to your Bank Account. If you do not have sufficient available funds in the Emergency Stash to cover the amount of the requested transfer, your request for the transfer will be declined. We may also transfer funds from the Emergency Stash to your Bank Account without notice to you upon the closure, cancellation, or termination of your FloatMe account.

Regardless of motive or purpose, or even if the result of a mistake or miscommunication, we will deem any attempt to link a Financial Account to more than one FloatMe User Accounts, whether such attempt is by you alone, or by you and one or more joint owners of such Financial Account, to represent a potential abuse of the Website and Services.
