How does early direct deposit work?
Once you elect to receive your pay on an upgraded Wisely Pay card2 and opt-in to receive Early Direct Deposit:

- Wisely deposits funds after processing
- In most cases, you will receive pay up to 2 days early, but it may be less depending on when we receive the payment instructions
