Max Your Money: SoFi Raises APY to 1.5% for Direct Deposit Members

SoFi members, rejoice: SoFi Checking & Savings is helping people earn more off their hard-earned money by raising our industry-leading annual percentage yield (APY)¹ for all members. Members with direct deposit will now earn 1.50% APY on their balances, 50 times the current national average². For members without direct deposit, all balances will now earn .90%, 30 times the national average³.

SoFi has no caps on money that can earn interest, so you are able to make money on every dollar you have in your SoFi Checking & Savings account.

Since launching SoFi Checking & Savings in February, this is the second time we’ve raised our APY to help members get the most out of their money. According to our recent SoFi Money Habits Survey, almost half of members report strained wallets, saying they are spending 10-20% more on average due to inflation⁴. We’re committed to putting money back in members’ pockets to help them get their money right and make their lives easier right now.
