What is Quin?
Quin is a fintech company offering a membership program that provides financial support if you lose your job. Members pay fees and, within 90 days of signing up, are eligible to receive $3,000 immediately upon losing a job. Members can still access state unemployment benefits.
Quin is a relatively new company, stating on its website that it’s “just getting started.” It has 12 team members with a combined 60 years in the fintech industry. It's based in New York City.
How does Quin work?
To become a Quin member, you first provide an email on the company’s website. You pay for membership; the cost is not specifically disclosed. You then wait 90 days to become eligible for the benefit.
Quin says it only takes a few minutes to access your cash if you lose your job. There are no forms to fill out or phone calls to make, and as long as 90 days have passed since you signed up, there is no waiting period. Quin provides $3,000, and you're still able to apply for unemployment benefits through your state.
The Quin website does not specify exact membership costs. It does say that the cost of a membership is “about the same as one takeout meal per month.” There's no mention of any other fees on the company’s website. To learn more about membership costs and any other fees, you can email Quin or provide your email and “request an invite” from the company.
