Who qualifies for earned wage access?

Rounding it up

  • Earned wage access (EWA) is available to nearly all employees. However, it's easier to access funds directly through a participating employer — Like KOHO’s Instant Pay.

  • Sometimes, EWA may come with additional fees. Be sure you understand them and work to stay out of a cycle of withdrawals.

  • Developing a budget can help you think long term, using EWA only when you really need to do so.
