October 5, 2022

OnShift Wallet, powered by Payactiv, now offers employees no-cost access to earned wages before payday and new financial wellness tools

Cleveland, OH – October 5, 2022 – OnShift, a leader in human capital management software for post-acute care and senior living, in partnership with Payactiv, the leading earned wage access and financial wellness platform today announced they are waiving standard Earned Wage Access (EWA) fees for users of OnShift’s financial wellness solution, OnShift Wallet. This includes making several EWA delivery options, including ACH, completely free for users of OnShift Wallet when accessing their earned wages between paychecks.

At the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic in 2020, OnShift and Payactiv had waived EWA fees to help healthcare employees during a period of uncertainty. With this release, EWA becomes even more accessible and stress-free for senior care employees.

“Earned wage access is a crucial benefit for senior care where many employees live paycheck to paycheck,” said Jim Rubadue, Chief Operating Officer, OnShift. “We’ve heard countless stories about how OnShift Wallet is helping caregivers in times of need. In partnership with Payactiv, we are proud to eliminate access fees to further support the senior care workforce.”

In addition to fee removal, the latest release of OnShift Wallet has an enhanced user experience and user benefits, including:

  • SmartSave tool to set financial goals and automatically save a portion of earned wages
  • Free 1:1 financial counseling & content dedicated to financial literacy
  • Peer-to-peer payments feature
  • Integration with Uber to book rides using earned wages
  • Expanded automatic bill payment services compatible with 75,000+ billers
  • Added discount offerings on movie tickets, gas & more

“By partnering with OnShift to provide additional free ways for the senior care workforce to access their earned wages, we’re doubling down on our mission to bring security, dignity, and savings to the millions of workers experiencing financial stress.” said Safwan Shah, Founder and CEO at Payactiv.

OnShift Wallet is free for all OnShift customers and integrates seamlessly with OnShift’s workforce management solutions. So far this year, users of OnShift Wallet have conducted nearly 532,000 transactions resulting in more than $54.7 million in earned wages accessed.1
