Balance Shield is an Activehours feature that’s making your paycheck smarter. Imagine paychecks are smart and show up when you need them most, instead of when it’s most convenient for your employer.
With Balance Shield, you can use your paycheck to avoid overdrafts caused by small purchases. When you enroll in Balance Shield, we’ll automatically send up to $100 to your bank whenever we see your bank balance fall below $100.
Keep in mind, the amount we’re able to send to your bank account is dependent on your Daily & Pay Period Max, as well as the amount of available earnings you’ve added. So, be sure to keep hours available by adding timesheets regularly (or keeping your app permissions on if you add your earnings automatically).
