Rocket Money will keep track of your past and upcoming paychecks. Here's a quick overview on how to view and manage your income within the mobile app!

Please note this feature can only be edited on the mobile app at this time. Please log in on your mobile phone to get started.

Income vs Payroll

Payroll should be used for your primary source of income. The Income category should be used for any miscellaneous income, i.e. a second job, freelancing, etc.

Upcoming paychecks

Upcoming paychecks can be found in your Dashboard as long as they are within one week from your payday. This is located in the Upcoming section of the Dashboard.

Upcoming paychecks can also be found on the Recurring tab within two weeks of your upcoming payday.

Viewing and adjusting your income history

Your income deposits are kept track of in the Earnings section in the Spending tab. You can view your past income deposits here.

You can also adjust your income manually by selecting the **Settings "**⚙️" icon on the upper left and then Manage Budget. From there, tap Earnings and you'll be able to adjust your income.

Tracking multiple payrolls

Rocket Money supports multiple payrolls. If you want to track your income and that of a partner or family member, we can do that!

  1. Tap on the **Settings "**⚙️" icon on the top left hand corner of the screen

  2. Select the Categories and Rules tab

  3. Tap New Category

  4. Type in the name you'd like to set for the category and choose an icon & color you'd like to use. You can also select if you want the category to be included in your spend or income.
