You can link up to two bank accounts at a time. To link an external bank account:
- From the Home screen, tap Cash.
- Press Banking
- Press Transfer Money
- Press Link, then press Bank.
- Follow the prompts to link the account.
When you tap Link, the Wire option is to link an account to send wires to, as a withdrawal. You can link a wire account using account and routing numbers.
Plaid has trouble linking some accounts, particularly Bank of America. If you search your bank account, and it is not found, or if you have trouble linking with your credentials, then try this next method:
On the Link screen, enter your bank name in the search bar, and generate search results. Instead of selecting your bank from the list, scroll to the bottom of the results, and select the option “Don't see your bank? Link with Account Numbers”, to manually link the account using your routing and accounts numbers. Once you enter your account numbers, your bank account will receive two small micro-deposits (within 2-3 business days). Once received, you can return to the LVL app, press Link again, and you will be prompted to enter those two amounts to complete the link.
To unlink a bank account, go to the Transfer screen, then press and hold a linked bank account, and press Unlink.
