Frequently asked questions

How it works

Dayforce Wallet supports employee financial wellness by allowing employers the ability to offer their employees to easily access their pay using a Dayforce Prepaid Mastercard®. The Dayforce Card can be used to make purchases, pay bills, and withdraw cash, all without needing a traditional bank account.

One of the biggest benefits of using Dayforce Wallet is the ability to access pay on-demand, as soon as it’s earned and at no cost. Employees may also choose to have all or some of their pay added to their Dayforce card each pay period using direct deposit.

Signing up for the Dayforce Card does not impact credit scores, as it not a credit card, and there is no credit check. Since it’s a prepaid card, only the available balance can be used.

Dayforce Wallet includes a free, easy to use, mobile app to help you access your pay on demand and manage your card. Available for Apple and Android devices, the app offers you the ability to view your card balance, available pay, and transaction history, as well as a way to locate in-network ATMs and transfer money to other accounts.

On-demand pay requests are made using the Dayforce Wallet mobile app. When an employee makes an on-demand pay request, funds are added to their Dayforce Wallet account and are accessible using their Dayforce Card

Dayforce Wallet is available to companies that use Ceridian’s flagship platform, Dayforce, for HCM/payroll in Canada or the United States. Not all Dayforce customers have signed up for Dayforce Wallet, so ask your employer if you’re not sure. You must be 18 years or older to register for Dayforce Wallet.

Adding pay to your card

You can add your pay to your Dayforce Card in one of two ways:

1. Many employers offer their employees on-demand pay, which means you can add your available pay to your card at any time, without having to wait until your standard payday. Not all companies using Dayforce Wallet offer on-demand pay, so ask your employer if you’re not sure. More information about on-demand pay can be found below.

2. You can also have your pay automatically deposited to your Dayforce Card each pay period by setting your card account up for direct deposit. You can have some or all of your paycheck added to your Dayforce Card even if you also use the on-demand pay feature. Click here to learn more about setting up direct deposit to your Dayforce Card.

Yes, the maximum that can be loaded to the Dayforce Card per day is $10,000. Your employer may also impose additional limits.

In the Dayforce Wallet mobile app, select “Add Pay to Card” and choose the amount of available pay you would like to add to your card. You cannot undo this action, and this amount will be paid to you immediately and not at the regularly scheduled pay cycle, so proceed with caution.

Once funds are loaded to your card, you can begin using them (subject to limits; please see the Cardholder Agreement and Fee Schedule.

Yes, each time funds are withdrawn, Dayforce Wallet automatically protects or withholds the proper amount of taxes, garnishments, and other source deductions for you based on the transaction amount.  The amounts are visible in your earning statements on Dayforce.
Yes, because each on-demand pay is a true payday, each on-demand pay will have a corresponding earning statement available in Dayforce.
Since an on-demand pay request is an actual payday, the hours used to calculate the on-demand payment are not used in future payments.  Your normal paycheck will only reflect wages you have not already been paid. The earning statement will reflect each on-demand pay distribution separately, as well as a total with the applicable earnings, deductions, and total amount distributed.
Upon separation from your employer, you will no longer be able to request or receive on-demand pay from this employer, but you will still have access to any remaining funds on your card. You can continue to add funds to your card, including pay from another employer. If your next employer doesn’t offer Dayforce Wallet, you can still have your direct deposit set up to go to your Dayforce Card. If your next employer does offer Dayforce Wallet, you can link your card to the new employer.

Using your card

You can use your card anywhere Mastercard debit cards are accepted. You can use your card to make online and in-store purchases, to pay bills, and to withdraw cash.
Yes, you may use the 16-digit Dayforce Card number printed on your card to pay any bills that can be paid via a debit card.
Yes, the Dayforce Card can be added to Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay.
Generally, yes, but be sure to check with the merchant before your transaction, as not all retailers accept multiple payment methods. If your purchase costs more than the balance on your card, most merchants allow you to simply pay the difference with cash or another payment method.

Card management and fees

There are no balance minimums, monthly fees, or fees to add your available pay to your card. Consult the Cardholder Agreement and Fee Schedule for a complete list of fees that do apply

The following limits apply to the Dayforce Card:
  • Maximum card balance – $50,000
  • Maximum load per transaction – $20,000
  • Maximum daily spend at point-of sale – $10,000
  • Maximum daily ATM withdrawal – $510
See the Cardholder Agreement and Fee Schedule for additional information.
As part of the registration process, Peoples Trust, the issuing bank of the Dayforce Card and a part of Peoples Bank Group, will perform a “soft inquiry” used for identity validation purposes only. “Peoples Bank Group” will appear on your credit report but this inquiry does not affect a person’s credit score.

If you see a transaction you don’t believe you made, please contact Customer Service immediately at 1-888-999-6824.

No, not at this time.

It is possible to have a negative balance on your card when you’ve use your card at establishments like restaurants, hotels, or other venues where you may add a tip onto a printed receipt. A negative balance means the tip added after the card authorization exceeded the card balance.  

Please ensure you have sufficient funds on the card that include the purchase and tip value before you authorize the charge. If you don’t do this, there is a possibility of a negative balance.

Transfer funds

Yes, employees can transfer funds to an external bank account using the Dayforce Wallet mobile app. However, one of the benefits of Dayforce Wallet is that it is designed to help employees manage their pay and expenses all in one place. There are no fees to transfer funds to another account.

ATMs and access to cash

Yes, you may use your card to withdraw cash at ATMs. There’s no fee when you use THE EXCHANGE® ATMs, offered by FICANEX®, the in-network, surcharge free ATM network for the Dayforce Card. You can locate these ATMs using the locator within the mobile app. You can still use your card out-of-network, but you will be subject to the out-of-network ATM fee as well as any additional fees imposed by the ATM operator or network. Consult the Cardholder Agreement and Fee Schedule for a complete list of fees.

Funds loaded onto your Dayforce Prepaid Mastercard are held by Peoples Trust Company (Peoples Trust), the issuer of the card and a member institution of Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC), and the funds are considered an eligible deposit. You as a cardholder are recorded as a depositor on Peoples Trust’s records. If a member institution fails, CDIC will reimburse your insured funds for eligible deposits made under the member institution, up to maximum of $100,000 per insured category, per depositor, per CDIC member institution. This means if Peoples Trust closes, CDIC will reimburse your funds on the card, combined with any other eligible deposits you have with Peoples Trust, for up to $100,000 of deposit protection, per insured category, per depositor.  For more details about CDIC insurance coverage under Peoples Trust Company, visit: Protecting Your Deposits. Ceridian HCM is not a CDIC member institution.
The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) is a federal Crown corporation, established by Parliament in 1967, that contributes to the stability of the Canadian financial system by providing deposit insurance against the loss of eligible deposits at member institutions in the event of a member institution failure. CDIC is not a bank. CDIC is not a private insurance company. You do not need to sign up for deposit insurance. Coverage is free and automatic for eligible deposits in any of CDIC member institutions. For further information, visit the CDIC website.
You can use the CDIC deposit insurance calculator to calculate your coverage and help you understand more about coverage. Follow these steps when using the calculator:
  • If your CDIC eligible card is in your name only:
    • Select “In Your Name” as the insured category.
    • Select “Peoples Trust Company” as the institution you bank with.
    • Select “Chequing Account” as the type of deposit you have. 
    • Add the value of your balance on your card as deposit value in Canadian Dollars and select “Confirm Deposit”.
  • If you have any other eligible deposits at Peoples Trust, such as another CDIC eligible card issued by Peoples Trust or you have RRSP, TSFA or other eligible deposits accounts, you should add these insured deposits when using the calculator to determine your complete coverage at Peoples Trust.                          
  • The CDIC coverage calculator gives you the option to calculate CDIC eligible deposits for one or multiple CDIC member institutions insurance coverage.
