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 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 Monthly Income 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!
You can create a custom category for another stream of income. To do this, please follow the below steps 👇
Tap on the Settings "⚙️" icon on the top left hand corner of the screen
Select the Categories and Rules tab
Tap New Category
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.
