Fund it

The Robinhood account gives you more ways to add money to your spending account:

  • Set up direct deposit: You can have your paycheck or government deposits like tax refunds deposited directly into your spending account.
  • Use your ACH account number and routing number: The ACH account number is your spending account number with a prefix. The routing number identifies the financial institution. You can find your ACH account number and routing number in your app when you select Transfer.

We work with partner banks to process transactions. The spending account ACH and routing numbers are issued by JPMorgan Chase Bank. This means that transfers to and from your spending account may appear as transfers to and from JPMorgan Chase Bank in your transaction history at other institutions.
