Earned wage access: Separating fact from fiction

Rounding it up

  • Earned wage access (EWA) allows you to access your earned income at a time that’s right for you, not your employer.

  • You don’t have to pay interest on money you’ve earned just because you want to use it before your scheduled pay date.

  • For this reason, EWA is a better and safer alternative to overdrafts and payday loans.

  • EWA is also beneficial for employers, as it can boost employee performance and loyalty, as well as the business’ bottom line.
