How does foundU On-Demand Wages work?

If your employer offers on-demand wages through foundU, you can access your earned wages before payday.

foundU lets you access wages you have already earned and uses real-time data to calculate this. You can access anywhere between $100 and your full pay.

There is a $5 fee each time you access your pay early.

How much does foundU On-Demand Wages cost?

foundU claims not to charge interest or any other fees apart from the $5 flat fee. The total amount owed (inclusive of the fee) will be directly deducted from your wages. You'll receive the balance amount – that is, your remaining wages – as per usual.

Does foundU do a credit check?

foundU claims that using the On-Demand Wages option will not have an impact on your credit score.

What should I be aware of with foundU On-Demand Wages?

  • Your employer needs to provide this option. Unlike some other pay-on-demand options, this option is only available to you if your employer offers it.
  • It may not be a loan but you need to be just as responsible. This is not a loan in a traditional sense, in that you're borrowing money that's technically owed to you and you've already earned. The On-Demand Wages option may also be fully integrated with your workplace payroll, but you should still use some discretion. Ideally, you should opt for it only in case of emergencies. It's useful if you've run short and there's an urgent bill or medical expense, but you need to budget for the rest of the month accordingly.
  • Short terms. Unlike a traditional loan, the repayment window is your next payday. The amount will be automatically deducted from your pay whether you like it or not.

Am I eligible to apply for foundU On-Demand Wages?

To be eligible for this service, it should be offered by your employer.

How do I sign up for foundU?

No sign up is required. As long as you get the green light from your employer, you can access your advances through the foundU employee app.

Are there any costs or set-up required on the part of employers?

No additional costs or set-up is required to offer your employees this service.
