Instant Pay Card

Instant Pay Card Process

The Instant Pay Card is a payment option for employees who will experience financial hardship because they did not receive pay on their regular payday and cannot wait for off-cycle check processing.

Eligibility

Non-represented employees are eligible for the Instant Pay Card if the following criteria are met:

  • Employee completes Instant Pay Card Consent form
  • Valid social security number and complete position & job in UCPath
  • Street Address on file (P.O. boxes are not allowed)

Note: The instant pay card is a one-time use payment solution for pay missed after UCPath conversion. It is not an option for reoccurring pay, pay prior to UCPath conversion, or any future pay period end dates.
