Work Today, Get Paid Today: How the Tapcheck Earned Wage Access App Can Help
Work Today, Get Paid Today
Imagine getting paid the same day you’ve worked a shift at your job. Just hours after putting in all that time and hard work – boom! The money you’ve earned that day is now in your bank account. You didn’t have to wait until payday, and now you can use that hard-earned money for any bills, expenses, or anything you want. It sounds like a dream!
Want to hear some good news? Same-day pay isn’t a dream — it’s a reality, and some folks out in the workforce are already living this reality! In this blog, we will go over what same-day (or on-demand) pay is, the benefits of on-demand pay, and why Tapcheck should be your on-demand pay provider of choice.
What is On-Demand Pay?
On-demand pay, also known as earned wage access, allows employees to access their earned wages before payday. Instead of waiting every week or two weeks for a paycheck, employees with access to on-demand pay can use a portion of the money they’ve made before payday arrives. For example, if payday is a few days away, but they encounter an unexpected expense – such as a vehicle repair – they can use an on-demand pay app to “cash out” the money they’ve already earned from their job.
Benefits of On-Demand Pay
On-demand pay can be an incredibly beneficial tool. Let’s take a look at the practical benefits on-demand pay provides.
Less Financial Stress
With access to earned wages, you can access the money you need when you need it. There’s no need to max out credit cards, take out loans, or go into debt over an emergency expense. You can transfer your earnings directly into your bank account, cover your financial commitment, and go on with your life.
A Financial Lifeline
Sometimes, life’s unexpected expenses just can’t wait for payday. On-demand pay gives you access to a guaranteed line of funds from the money that you’ve already earned. You get freedom and peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to wait for a paycheck to take care of the financial situations that need your attention.
No Predatory Loans
On-demand pay makes predatory loans a thing of the past! Payday loans prey on vulnerable people in challenging financial situations, charging exorbitant interest rates on loans that people desperately need and making them nearly impossible to pay back. Access to your earned wages allows you to take care of financial issues without taking out one of these unnecessary loans.
Did you know that many workers spend up to $1,300 each year on banking and overdraft fees? Yikes! That’s a lot of money that could go towards necessities like rent, gas, or groceries. That amount could cover 1-2 months of rent, approximately 26 tanks of gas, or about six months’ worth of groceries. Using an on-demand pay service like Tapcheck, you can avoid these fees altogether by tapping into money you’ve already earned.
There are several on-demand pay services available, but the one that you should request from your employers, hands down, is Tapcheck.
Tapcheck’s app is a powerful tool for workers. It’s easy to use and gives you access to more than just earned wages. The Tapcheck app also offers an extensive library of financial education resources for free. This information can guide you to making better money-related decisions and improve your financial situation over time, putting you on the path to true financial wellness and freedom.
Along with the incredible app and wealth of financial information, Tapcheck allows users to pay for items with the Tapcheck MastercardⓇ. You can transfer your earned wages directly onto the card or the Tapcheck digital wallet and make purchases like you would with a traditional debit or credit card. Yes, it really is that easy! With the Tapcheck Mastercard, you don’t even need a bank account to make these purchases.
If your company doesn’t offer on-demand pay, mention Tapcheck to your HR department. It’s beneficial to employees, easy to integrate, and, best of all, it’s free for your organization. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
