    How weekly deposits work

    Weekly deposit timeline

    Every Tuesday, earnings are transferred from your Lyft account to your bank account.
    Most drivers see the deposit in their bank account between Wednesday and Friday of the same week.

    What’s included

    Your weekly deposit includes your driver earnings from the previous Lyft week. The Lyft week runs from Monday at 5 AM to the following Monday at 4:59 AM.

    What’s not included

    Your weekly deposit only includes earnings from the previous Lyft week. The Lyft week ends on Monday at 4:59 AM, so anything you earn after that won’t be included in your deposit.
    If you use Express Pay or Lyft Direct to get paid sooner, those earnings won’t be included in your deposit.

    Failed or missing deposit

    Failed deposit

    If your weekly deposit fails, we’ll send you a message with instructions on how to fix the issue.
    The most common reason for a failed transfer is outdated or incorrect bank info.

    Late or missing deposit

    Weekly deposits can take up to 5 business days to be added to your bank account. They may take longer during holidays.
    If you don’t see your transfer after 5 business days, contact your bank for help.
    Your weekly deposit is sent out as an ACH transfer. To find the amount and date of your deposit:
    1. Tap the ‘$’ at the bottom of your app’s home screen
    2. Tap ‘See weekly breakdown’
    3. Tap ‘See payout history’
    If your bank doesn’t have info on the deposit, or if you think it was sent to the wrong account, use the ‘Contact Us’ button at the bottom of this page. Please include the amount and date of the deposit and let us know what’s going on.
    If you think your bank info may be incorrect, you should update your bank info before contacting us.

    Get paid sooner

    If you don’t want to wait for your weekly deposit, you can get paid sooner with Express Pay or Lyft Direct.

    Express Pay lets you cash out your earnings instantly to a debit card. Most drivers see their Express Pay in their account within 24 hours.
