Family Accounts

Users under 18 can get access to expanded Cash App features in the US (including P2P transactions, Cash Card, Direct Deposit, Boost, bitcoin*, and stocks*) with approval from a parent or guardian (sponsor).

*Bitcoin and stock features are optional when creating a family account, and users under 18 will require additional approval to access these features.

Once a sponsor approves their request, they become the legal account owner of the family account, and users under 18 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.
