How Does EWA Work?
Earned Wage Access (EWA), also known as On-Demand Pay, allows employees to receive a portion of their wages before the regular pay date. This is not a loan. Any EWA disbursement taken will be deducted directly from your paycheck on payday.
With an AnyDay card (virtual and physical), you can pay bills, shop in-store and online, and transfer money directly to your bank account.
