If you are a parent or trusted adult, you can invite someone 13-17 to use Cash App and access features like P2P transactions (including recurring allowance payments), Cash Card, direct deposit, Boost, bitcoin*, and stocks.
Once you approve their request, you become their sponsor – the legal account owner of the sponsored account – and the person you sponsor will be considered an authorized user of this account. Sponsors can track activity in the app, and turn specific features on/off. Sponsors may also close and/or pause accounts or cancel sponsorship at any time by contacting Cash App Support.
Cash balances (including Savings) of both sponsored accounts and their sponsors are FDIC insured up to $250,000 through our partner banks. If you have multiple Cash App accounts, and/or multiple sponsored accounts, they are included under the same insurance coverage. Bitcoin and investing balances are not covered by FDIC insurance.
