How do I update my Preferred Payment Method?

Payments from UpTogether will be made directly to your preferred payout method — direct deposit or a physical or virtual UpTogether card.

To ensure you receive all future UpTogether funds, all you have to do is update your preferred payout method by taking the steps below. It takes just a few minutes.

  1. Log in to UpTogether using the same login method (email or phone magic link, Facebook, Google) you used to apply.

  2. Go to your dashboard. 

  3. Click on 'Payment Options.'

  4. Locate the account that you would like your UpTogether funds to be deposited in and click the checkbox next to "Preferred Payment Receipt Method" to set your preferred method for automatic payments.

  5. Save your changes.

Please Note

There are currently three payout method options you can choose from. Please carefully read each option in detail before making a decision. 

  • Direct deposit is an electronic funds transfer into your bank account. 
  • Physical UpTogether card is a prepaid card mailed to your home address. These are NOT debit cards and cannot be used to withdraw money at an ATM or to get cash back from in-store purchases. Read more about the physical UpTogether card here

  • Virtual UpTogether cards can be used online only. You cannot use them to make in-person purchases. Read more about the virtual UpTogether cards here
