When will my Activehours pay period Max increase?

Our Max system helps us ensure that our community is financially healthy and that we can afford to continue providing service to customers without charging fees. Everyone is guaranteed a pay period Max of $100 and a daily Max of $100. The highest pay period Max we offer currently is $500.

If you’re doing well in each of the following categories, just keep using the app. You’re likely to see a Max increase soon. We evaluate maxes around each pay cycle so if your max was adjusted this week and you make some of the above improvements, you may see an increase as soon as your next pay day. Keep in mind, your Max may increase or decrease depending on the following:
