Financial Wellness and Workforce Engagement Platform

Earned Wage Access

Our platform makes it possible for employers to offer their employees access to their earned but unpaid wages between paychecks by integrating with the UKG software they already use and making the employees’ wages available from a mobile app. Employees can access their Earned Wages when they need them and transfer them to their card or bank account to make payments, pick up as cash from Walmart, or use directly for Uber, Amazon, or to pay bills from the app.

  • In order for you to be paid early, your payroll or benefits payment provider must submit the deposit early.

A qualifying deposit is defined as a direct deposit greater than $5.00 received from the same payer.

Tips & Mileage

Replace the outdated manual calculations, delays, and hassle of having enough cash on hand to disburse your employees' tips and mileage. Service industry employees rely on more than half of their income to come from tips. We can help you automate electronic disbursements of employees' tips on the Payactiv card or any card or bank account of employees' choice. You can eliminate the need to keep large amounts of cash on hand and rest easy with a 2-day cash float.

The data is more accurate when the user is linking their primary account numbers that they use most often for their expenses.
