About Earnin:

Earnin is a community-supported financial platform with a suite of tools that let people take control of their financial future. One of the greatest – and least discussed – inequities in the American financial system today is the practice of employers paying workers bi-weekly. We’re building a better system with our core tool, Cash Out, which allows people to access the money they've already earned ‒ with no fees or interest. People simply pay what they think is fair. 

Other tools include: Balance Shield, which helps prevent overdrafts, a financial calendar that helps people budget and schedule payments, and Tip Yourself ‒ a revolutionary free feature that makes putting money aside simple, social, and fun!  

Funding: Series C, current funding partners include Andreessen Horowitz, DST, Matrix Partners, Ribbit Capital, Felicis Ventures, and March Capital. 

Join us and help build a new financial system focused on fairness and people’s needs.

You can help make a difference!

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
