Get early access to your money

Get early access to your money

Turn Wednesday into Fri-YAY.

Sometimes, when payday is just around the corner, that corner feels very, very far away. Whether it’s getting a jump on weekend errands, prepping for this weekend’s birthday party, or grabbing some groceries, getting access to your money as soon as it’s available is always helpful. And, in the case of surprises like car repairs or bills, an early payday can often bring peace of mind.

Did you know that some accounts, like the Walmart MoneyCard, can actually get you your money up to two days early1 with early direct deposit- giving you access to your money when you need it most.

With a Walmart MoneyCard account and early direct deposit, you can get access to your pay up to two days early, and up to four days early for government benefits1, which include:

  • Social Security benefits
  • SSI (Supplemental Security Income)
  • Pension payments
  • Railroad Retirement Benefits (RRB)
  • Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) payments
  • State unemployment benefits
  • Government Disability Benefits (SSDI or Workers' Compensation)
  • Veterans' benefits

Additionally, you can earn 3% cash back on purchases up to $75 each year2, opt in for overdraft protection up to $2003 with eligible direct deposit, no monthly fees with qualifying direct deposit,4 and so much more. You’ll receive a debit card that can be used anywhere Visa® or Mastercard® are accepted, and with the Walmart MoneyCard mobile app, you can manage your account from anywhere—getting notified as soon as your pay hits your account.

Sign up for a Walmart MoneyCard with early direct deposit.
