In April, PayActiv began partnering with the city of New York and Unqork to provide the city’s taxi drivers access to their wages as they deliver food and beverage items to people across the city. As of early May, over four thousand taxi drivers in the city had enrolled with our financial wellness platform, and this number will only increase. Another way of deepening community connections is through the creation of the Access Foundation, an organization in partnership with PayActiv that provides access to relief and financial wellness to American workers experiencing financial hardship during the COVID-19 crisis.
For PayActiv, partnership has always been at the core of what we do. We partner with employers across the nation to provide more than a million employees with Earned Wage Access (EWA). We also partner with Amazon, Uber, and Walmart to help deliver critical products and services to our members. In collaboration with all these companies and more, PayActiv has integrated the benefits they provide into our holistic financial wellness platform. Through it, our members can leverage budgeting and savings tools, online bill-pay services, individual financial counseling, and discounts on medications at participating pharmacies across the country.
With over one million users, PayActiv is continuously looking for creative ways to deliver funds to those in need. And as we continue to collaborate and innovate within communities across the US, we are reminded time and again of how closely connected we all are. We’re heartened by the new connections we’re making every day and consider these indicators of our growth not only as a business but also as leaders, neighbors, and friends.
