Black Economic Equity Movement (BEEM)


We’re so excited that you’re a part of BEEM!

This page will help you sign up for FinCap offerings if you didn’t sign up during enrollment and will answer questions that may arise during your time in the BEEM program. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions that arise– [email protected].

Sign up for Financial Mentoring

Didn’t originally sign up to work with a mentor, but are interested in starting? Email us to let us know you’d like to work with a mentor and we’ll help you get started– [email protected].

Sign up for MyMoney Hour

We all think about money a lot, but we rarely talk about it. A lot of us don’t learn about money in school or at home, and it’s not uncommon to feel shame or discomfort when financial topics come up. But you have to start talking about money if you want to change your money situation.
MyMoney Hour is a judgment-free space where people can better understand their relationship with money and start to learn the skills to live the financial life they want. MyMoney Hour learning circles are a space to share knowledge, ideas, and experiences between peers in the BEEM program. We’re revamping MyMoney Hour and putting people in groups of 10-15 to complete the entire program together. If you’d like to sign up to join a cohort, email us at [email protected].

Sign up for CFR Info Session

When it’s your turn to get the money, every month you’ll get your money on a pre-paid debit card called a CFR card. Learn more about the CFR card capabilities by signing up for one of our CFR info sessions.

I joined BEEM. When do I get paid?

As a reminder, not everyone who participates in the project will get Guaranteed Income right away. Half the participants will receive income right away (cash now). The other half will have to wait a year before receiving the payments (cash later). The decision about which group someone goes into is done randomly, like the flip of a coin. 

If you are in the cash now group, you’ll get income starting the month after you enroll for 12 months from when you started. For example, if you joined BEEM in February 2023, you’ll get payments from March 2023 to March 2024. Payments are made on the first of the month or the Friday before if the first falls on a weekend or holiday. The payment dates are listed below.

What other resources are there for me to make the most of my CFR card?

I’m hoping to set up autopay for a bill using my CFR card- how do I do this?

This varies depending on the bill, but typically you’ll need your account number and the CFR routing number (071004200). You can find your account number on the paperwork you were given along with your CFR card or you can give customer service a call and they can help you obtain your account number (1-877-474-0010). The account number will be a 13-digit number beginning with 600.
