Why am I being asked to verify my Primary Checking Account?

Your trust means the world to us, and it’s why we want to take every measure to verify that you are you.

To confirm that the bank account you're linking is a bank account that belongs to you, we'll send two micro-deposits to the account, each less than $1. May take 1-3 business days to show in your bank account.

When you see these two small deposits in your bank account, log in to your Acorns account from your mobile app or acorns.com, and you'll see a prompt to verify your bank account. Select "Verify Now" and follow the prompts to confirm the amounts of the two micro-deposits. 

If you have any issues with verifying the micro-deposits, please contact us. You can learn more about everything we do to protect your account with us here.
