Getting a Sponsored Account

Sending a Sponsor Request

After signing up for Cash App, anyone 13-17 must ask a parent or trusted adult to sponsor their account in order to access certain features.

Before an account is sponsored, certain actions will prompt you for more details, like ordering a Cash Card, sending a payment, or adding funds from a debit card. You can send a sponsor request directly from Family in account settings.

To do so:

  • Tap the Profile Icon on your Cash App home screen
  • Select Family and tap I’m a teen
  • Follow prompts to enter your name and birthday
  • Tap Select sponsor and look up a parent or trusted adult
  • Tap Send in the top right
