Household income has grown over the past decade, but it has failed to keep up with the increased cost of living in the same period. Yet in spite of taking home a smaller real wage, 92% of respondents said financial stability and predictable income was more important than “moving up the income ladder."
Complete Payroll's Payday Advance solution gives your employees a liquidity option that they didn’t have before, provides a safety net from predatory lending and bank overdraft fees in times of cash shortfalls, and is a big step towards income normalization. This breaks the disconnect between daily expenses and bi-weekly payday, and we do this at zero cost to employers.
Set your company apart by allowing your employees to access their money when they need it.
When an employee wishes to take a payday advance, our service verifies their hours worked, their wage and other distributions to determine that individual’s expected take-home pay. This gives the employee the ability to access a portion of the amount that has been accrued in wages, meaning they cannot overextend themselves in the system and will not go into debt through their use of our service.
In fact, on-demand access to their wages can help employees avoid the pitfalls of predatory lending debt cycles and incurring NSF/overdraft fees.
In a time where it seems that everything is available on demand, Complete Payroll believes that access to one’s accrued wages should be as well. Our Payday Advance service fills the gap between a complex settlement system and an employee’s more immediate needs. Changes to the ways most people shop and go about their daily lives are prompting employees to expect similar innovation in their benefit experiences. Technology has reached the level where the benefit of real-time wage settlement can be delivered in a cost-effective way.
Employees pay a small fee to receive a transfer of their accrued wages in advance. There is no cost to employers to make this service available to their employees.
Compared to payday loan fees of $520 in interest, access to $3,000 would cost the employee only $75, with no additional fees, and can be used to avoid average NSF/overdraft fees of $225. This results in direct savings for these employees and more cash in their pockets.
Our system is fully self-service and integrated with payroll. Employees can request immediate transfers of accrued hours/wages for a small fee, protecting them from bank overdraft fees and predatory lenders.
Employees choose how much money they'd like to access and click submit — that’s it. No need to worry about remembering to pay anyone back — money is automatically debited from their account on your next payday.
Over 70% of American employees live paycheck to paycheck. Employees are stressing when they should be working. Provide your employees with a benefit they will use and appreciate.
Employers are increasingly recognizing that stress is amongst the biggest challenges to workplace wellbeing, and are looking for ways to assist their employees in reducing this stress. Individuals consistently report, year after year, that their greatest stress is financial.
Many Americans do not have access to credit cards or other bank loans or have maximized their available credit facilities. This lack of access to classic sources of credit means individuals are pushed to seek alternative financial services when in need of immediate access to funds.
The debt cycle begins when an individual takes out a payday loan for a high fee. On average, a payday loan borrower takes out eight loans in a year for a total of $3,000 in loans, and they will pay $520 in interest. Payday loans are not a short-term fix for most borrowers. The result is just the opposite, with the user often ending up more financially insecure at the end.
Payroll scheduling is unlikely to change and expenses are not going to become more intermittent. The disconnect between these two is not lessening.
But what if an employee could access their wages if they needed them before payday? Today, almost everything is available on-demand. This is a service that fills the gap between a complex settlement system and an employee’s more immediate needs. Changes to the ways most people shop and go about their daily lives are prompting employees to expect similar innovation (online tools and apps) in their benefit experiences. Technology has reached the level where the benefit of real-time wage settlement can be delivered in a cost-effective way.
