Specialty Accounts For All

Whether your employees are paying for student loans, groceries, utilities, or gym memberships – life adds up, and quickly. $ + $ + $ = $$$. (Literally.)

During this pandemic, money’s producing almost as much anxiety and panic as the coronavirus itself. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is quickly interrupting the lives of people all over the globe — and has many wondering what it could mean for them, their loved ones, their finances and their futures.

Employers are looking for creative ways to help their staff during these uncertain chaotic times, while also considering their organization’s mission, goals and values. Although this seems like a tall order, many companies require a solution that’s smart, flexible and customized to fit their business— where every dollar has a job, and truly makes a difference to the people that really need it. In other words, employers need an account that allows them to get creative with their benefits.

“We hate flexibility!” said no one ever.
