PayActiv Early Pay Program
More about the Early Pay Program and How to Sign Up:
We are pleased to include PayActiv Financial Wellness Services to our voluntary employee benefits. With PayActiv, you can get up to 50% of your earned wages during a payroll period at any time. It’s not a loan and the accessed amount is settled by a debit from your bank account after payroll is run.
Who’s eligible for the benefit? This benefit is available to all of our caregiving staff with a bank account. If you are using a pay card, you may also be able to take advantage of the benefit if PayActiv is able to initiate a debit transaction against the pay card account. If you have a pay card and are interested, go ahead and enroll in the program and PayActiv will let you know if your pay card will work.
Here’s an example of how it works: Let’s say you are a week and a half into the payroll period and have earned $700. You will have the ability to access $350 of the earned amount immediately. Your payroll will still be processed for the full amount of your earnings on the scheduled pay date. Then, after payroll is run and funds have been deposited into your account, PayActiv will then initiate a debit transaction from your bank account for the $350 you took early during the payroll period. The cost to you is only $5 for the pay period. The $5 will allow you to access your earned amount up to 3 times during the payroll period.
