MoneyLion 101: Getting Started With MoneyLion


Wait, what is MoneyLion?

MoneyLion is a powerful mobile banking app that helps you borrow, save, and invest all in one place. It comes with a ton of valuable benefits like some of the top financial resources in mobile banking.

How to register for MoneyLion

First, download the MoneyLion app on the Google Play Store or the App Store. Then:

  1. Sign up for a RoarMoney account. You can do this at or through the mobile app. Although MoneyLion is available on your desktop, we always recommend using the app because it unlocks popular features like Instacash.
  2. During the sign-up process, you’ll be asked for some personal information. Make sure the email address you use is one you check frequently and have easy access to. When it comes to managing your money, accessibility is key.
  3. Remember that some membership accounts have costs or fees, but the basic account itself is free.

How long does it take to add funds into my RoarMoney℠ account?

Most of the time, you’ll have access to your funds quickly. However, it can depend on where your funds are coming from. Depending on your banking institution, it can take up to 3 business days for funds to be added to your RoarMoney account via wire transfer/ACH.

How long does it take to qualify for Instacash℠ ?

When you open your RoarMoney account, you can take advantage of the all-in-one banking experience and additional bonuses like Instacash℠ Advance, which helps you get cash fast!

Instacash is a 0% cash advance that doesn’t require a credit check. Here’s how to start using Instacash:

  1. Unlock the Instacash feature in the MoneyLion app
  2. Link Instacash to your bank account
  3. Request up to $250 in cash advance!

Instacash advances can be deposited within a few days for free, or in seconds if you pay a fee. Traditional loans can take weeks to be approved and deposited.
