Earned Wage Access (EWA)

Empowering the workforce to access their earned wages on their own terms.

Issue 101

EWA is a payroll innovation that enables workers to access wages they have already earned when they need it and serves as an important alternative to arbitrary pay periods and high-cost predatory options. Responsible, affordable, and transparent EWA companies are democratizing financial services and disrupting broken legacy systems that have historically put employees at a disadvantage. EWA is simply not a loan and should not be regulated as such.
