NEW YORK, April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MoneyLion, America's most powerful financial membership designed to help the hardest-working Americans save, borrow and invest, today announced a partnership with Via, the leader in on-demand shared transit, to provide its driver partners with a new way to bank, invest and grow their money. The partnership enables Via drivers in the U.S. to sign up for MoneyLion BonusSM, a financial wellness membership program created to help sharing economy workers invest, save, and plan.
"The number of Americans joining the sharing economy is growing rapidly, with 30 percent of the U.S. workforce receiving a gig paycheck every month. We've created a unique program that is designed specifically for those active in the sharing economy, so they are able to earn more rewards and save their hard-earned cash," said Dee Choubey, CEO and Co-Founder of MoneyLion. "We know that our innovative mobile banking app is a natural fit for that emerging industry, and the workers who already rely on their phones to manage their work lives, but we wanted to go further. We are excited to team up with Via to launch a new program that truly fits the unique needs of the sharing economy."
The partnership between MoneyLion and Via is a first-of-its-kind financial wellness program designed to provide drivers with tools that both educate them in financial literacy and create a seamless platform for easy-to-navigate payment processes. The program's benefits include:
* Zero-interest paycheck advance that participating drivers can take out any day of the week between pay periods, for up to $250. The paycheck advance is simply deducted at zero-percent APR from their next direct deposit.
* MoneyLion also offers a $500 low-interest loan that can be funded instantly to their account.
* Additionally, participating drivers can take advantage of zero-fee checking, zero-fee investment accounts, investment advice, cashback and rewards for everyday purchases.
* Drivers will also have access to free credit monitoring, up to 12 percent cashback rewards at over 20,000 retailers nationwide, and personalized budgeting and financial education.
The program can help members save an average of $887 a year by eliminating unnecessary bank fees, while also helping drivers increase savings and improve individual credit scores.
The MoneyLion Bonus program will be available to Via drivers in New York, Chicago, and Washington DC. To learn more about MoneyLion Bonus, please visit: https://partner.moneylion.com/via.
