On demand payment allows employees to obtain a portion of their wages as they acquire them throughout their pay period. As an employer, you can opt into this feature and choose which employees have access to it. Employees can then request advanced wages as needed.
Attract and Retain Talent
We know that nearly 80% of U.S. workers live paycheck to paycheck, and 1 in 4 don’t set aside monthly savings. With our proprietary On Demand Payment solution, you can offer your employees an alternative to pay advances and high interest payday loans. On Demand Payment provides early access to a portion of earned wages during the active pay cycle (before the scheduled payday), without additional paperwork, special permission from HR or managers, or changes to your payroll processes and cash flow.
How it Works
Offer Hassle-Free Access to Funds
Employees can view and request their earned wages via desktop or the mobile app. When requests are made by noon CT, funds are available on the same day.
Leave the Calculations to Us
Employees see a real-time net pay calculation showing actual earnings during the active pay cycle, not a prediction. Paylocity ensures they can’t request more than they’ve earned—even factoring in taxes and other deductions.
Don't Change Your Process
Approvals and deductions are automatic and Paylocity pre-funds the transfers—meaning you don’t need to change your payroll frequency or cash flow.
