Pinwheel is a leading payroll connectivity company that provides Acorns with a platform for securely linking direct deposit information to your Acorns Checking account.


In the payroll switch experience, you will have the option to search for either your employer or payroll provider and enter your sign-in credentials. You will be able to digitally connect your Direct Deposit paycheck to Acorns Checking by signing into your employer’s Payroll Provider portal. Your Acorns Checking account and routing number will be shared with Pinwheel for the purpose of connecting your direct deposit paycheck to Acorns.


If your employer allows for different paycheck allocations, you will see the option to designate either your entire paycheck or a certain amount of each paycheck, into your Acorns Checking account.
