Earned Wage Access (EWA) is a financial technology solution that provides employees access to their earned wages outside of their traditional pay cycle. EWA is also referred to as “early wage access,” "on-demand pay," or "pay on demand.”
One of the main advantages of EWA options like Rain is that they can help to reduce the dangers of payday loans and other predatory financial products. These products often target individuals who need quick cash, but come with unfavorable terms.
This can result in a cycle of debt that is difficult to break.
