When unexpected expenses come up, we want employees to have a more affordable option than taking a costly payday loan or a hardship withdrawal from the 401(k) plan.

TrueConnect is Excellent. We are very pleased with this benefit program. The TrueConnect team is very responsive.

Jeff Tuttle, Payroll Specialist – PlanSource

This is a very easy program to administer and takes less than 30 minutes every two weeks to do. We do advertise it every week in our weekly newsletter that goes out to all employees. I’d say it is going over well.
