Making sure you have the correct pay schedule set up helps us help you! Your pay schedule informs us when income has been deposited into your bank account by your employer.
Having the proper pay schedule ensures we can provide you with the proper cash advance and payback date for your advances.
Need help setting up your pay schedule? Here’s some info that should help:
- Your pay period: How often you get paid. Example: every week, every 2 weeks, twice a month, or every month.
- Your pay date: The actual day(s) of the month you get paid. Example: every month on the 2nd.
Identifying your pay period:
Take a look at your monthly transactions, either on the home screen of the Dave app or your online bank statements so you can see the actual dates you receive income. Your pay period can be any of the four options below.
Weekly: Every week on a specific day of the week (52 payrolls per year).
Example: every Friday.
Twice a Month: Every two weeks on a specific day of the week (26 payrolls per year).
Example: every other Friday.
Every Month: Every month on a specific date of the month (12 payrolls per year).
Example: on the 26th.
Every Month (Same Day): Every month on a specific day (12 payrolls per year).
Example: on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
