Set up bank and tax info to get paid

For Lyft to transfer your driver earnings, you must enter your bank and tax info in the Driver Dashboard. Always keep this info updated so your deposits transfer without delay.

Heads up: For your security, Lyft agents can’t see or change this info for you. It may be easier to use a desktop computer (if possible) instead of a phone to update this info.

Submit your bank info

We can only transfer earnings to checking accounts. We can't deposit to savings or business accounts.

Before you begin, you'll need:

  • Your bank's 9-digit routing number
    • Routing numbers are usually on the lower left corner on personal checks (call your bank if you don't any checks)
  • Your personal, 12 or 13-digit account number
    • Note: We don't need the check's number that is shown after

Get started

  1. Log in to the Driver Dashboard
  2. Tap 'Payout Information'
  3. Tap 'Edit bank info' under the Bank Information header
  4. Enter your routing and account numbers in the appropriate boxes
  5. Tap 'Submit'
  6. We may send a confirmation text to drivers with 10 or more rides. This is only required if you receive the text
  7. That's it! If you haven't already, submit your tax info

Submit your tax info

  1. Log in to the Driver Dashboard

    • Individual tax classification. Enter your full name and Social Security number. For security reasons, your Social Security number won’t be displayed if you leave the page and come back
    • Corporation/LLC tax classification. Enter your full business name, current business address, and EIN or ITIN. For security reasons, your EIN/ITIN won’t be displayed if you leave the page and come back

Failed transfers

If you get a failed transfer notice, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to update your bank info. For failed Express Pay transfers, we’ll send a text. We’ll try to deposit your earnings again immediately after you update your bank account information, even if you enter the same account info.

If you don't update your bank account information, we'll try to deposit your earnings the following Tuesday to whatever bank account information is still on file.

Transfers begin Tuesdays and usually show up in your account within 1-3 business days.

Common reasons for failed transfers:

  • You haven't entered both your banking or tax info yet
  • Incorrect banking info (such as mis-typed routing or account number)
  • Business or savings account (we only transfer to personal checking accounts)
  • You didn't respond to the text, email, or notification asking you to confirm your bank info, which you’ll receive after you've submitted or updated bank info
  • Your bank doesn't accept Automated Clearing House (or ACH, a kind of electronic transfer). Most banks accept ACH transfers, but you may need to confirm with your bank if you’re having issues receiving your deposit

If you're still not sure why you're receiving failed transfer notices, contact your bank. Confirm your account status, your account number, and the bank's routing number.
