To sign up, make sure that your company offers Clair. We work with over 20,000 businesses across the United States through our partnerships with many payroll, scheduling, and time and attendance companies.
To become eligible for On-Demand Pay, you need to set up direct deposit to your new account. This way, you’ll be able to pay back your advances automatically when your paycheck hits your Clair Spending Account.
After your first paycheck is deposited to your Clair Spending Account, you’ll be eligible to start taking wage advances!
After work everyday, up to 50% of your daily gross (pre-tax) earnings will be available for you to advance. You can keep advancing up to the amount of the last paycheck that you received in your Clair Spending Account. The maximum that you can advance in any pay period is $1,500.

We believe that nobody should have to pay a fee to access their own money – which is why we aim to keep wage advances free forever.
We make money through Mastercard! Whenever you spend on your debit card, we get a portion of the fee that Mastercard collects from merchants for processing the transaction.
