On-demand pay, also known as earned wage access, is no longer just a want but a need of employees across the country. Gone are when employees had to wait two weeks to receive the money they had already earned. On-demand pay gives employees immediate access to their earned but unpaid income between pay periods, effectively eliminating the traditional payday.

A recent Bank of America study revealed that 95% of employers, up from 81% in 2015, feel a sense of responsibility for their employees’ financial wellness. On the hard cost of financial stress, the 2021 Wellness Barometer Survey, CITE Research on behalf of BrightPlan, found that employers faced an estimated $4.7 billion loss per week as financially stressed employees are less productive and less engaged. Fortunately, on-demand pay is a one-of-a-kind financial wellness tool that boosts productivity and engagement.

  • DailyPay allows the employer to set a maximum percentage of net earned income, up to 100%, that their employees can access.
  • DailyPay connects with the employer’s timekeeping system to determine the employee’s gross earnings.
  • Employees are given access to that percentage of funds as they earn it in their DailyPay Balance™.
  • Employees can transfer money from their DailyPay Balance to a bank account, debit card or pay card of their choice for a small ATM-like fee.
  • DailyPay prefunds all these transfers and takes on 100% of the risk, so there is no added work for the employer.
  • Any pay not transferred early is automatically deposited into the employee’s primary bank account on payday.

“Through our technology, any employee can now see exactly what her accrued earnings are, and at a tap of a button have access to any part of those earnings 24/7/365. It’s not a payback. There’s not a loan. There’s just your money and we’re delivering that to you on demand,” said Jason Lee, CEO and founder of DailyPay.
