Our focus is on removing any hurdles that limit our customers’ ability to thrive.

Lili is specifically designed for independent workers and small business owners, so in order to get a Lili account, at least some of your income should be generated from alternative sources like freelance or gig work, or as an independent contractor or small business owner.
Lili offers mobile banking with no account fees, which means: no sign-up fees, monthly fees or annual fees. Lili also does not charge you at the ATM, although you are responsible for any ATM provider fees.
In addition to the fee-free Lili Standard account, Lili users have the option to upgrade to a Lili Pro account, which has a monthly fee of $4.99. Lili Pro includes a Premium Visa Business debit card with cashback rewards, fee-free overdraft, automatic savings (with 1% APY), among other features.
No hidden fees, easy account set-up (it takes less than 3 minutes), 24/7 access via our intuitive mobile app, no withdrawal fees from ATMs across the US (fees from ATM owner or other banks still apply), data-driven insights that help you manage your money, a debit card that gives back with Lili Visa SavingsEdge rewards, special functionality tailored to the unique needs of freelancers (like the ability to easily categorize business and personal expenses or automatically set aside a portion of every deposit into a sub-account for tax season) – all for free.

There are important things you should do to keep things secure on your end, as well. Make sure you choose passwords that only you will know and if you have access to more sophisticated technology like Touch ID or facial recognition, use it!
