accessible.

So you can save on fees, earn 0.5% cashback and build emergency savings.

Grit is a financial wellness account designed for
one main purpose: to help you get ahead.

  • Connect your Grit account with your bank account and you’ll gain access to earned wages within 24 hours, at no charge.

    When you sign up for Grit, you’ll receive:

    • 1. A Grit Visa debit card
    • 2. Access to the Grit app and a growing suite of financial wellness tools.
  • Request earned wage payments when you need them.

    When you sign up for Grit, we sync up with your employer’s paycycle, so we can give you advance access to your earned wages.

    Through the Grit app, users get no-fee access to up to 60% of their earned wages up to three times per month*. Earned wages are made available within one business day when you sign up for a Grit Card. Requesting an earned wage payment does not affect your credit score.

  • Two ways to use Grit:

    • 1

      Basic: By linking your Grit account to your bank account.

      Your earned wage payments will be deposited directly to your bank account.

    • 2

      Premium: By using your Grit Card for direct deposits and to make purchases.

      By switching your direct deposit to Grit, you’ll receive 0.5% cashback on qualified purchases using your Grit Card, have access to ATM withdrawals**, and have early wage access.

  • How to repay earned wage advances

    An earned wage advance must be repaid on the day you receive your next paycheck. The full amount of the advance will be withdrawn from your Grit Card or your designated bank account.

Well-versed in the ins and outs of disclosures and agreements, contracts and corporate matters, Wendy is most excited about helping others to achieve financial stability, something she had to grapple with herself in her younger years and as a law student. Her goal is to ensure Grit’s financial wellness tools not only help people through financial emergencies, but also establish long-term habits for financial success.
How she got her financial grit: “In college, when I was living off loans and part-time work, I had a budget and that really helped me. After college and law school I had loans to pay. Budgeting and understanding where your money goes can really make a difference in your financial security.”
