Walmart is working with two technology start-ups to allow some of its employees to get their checks ahead of time.

Bloomberg reports Walmart has unveiled financial-planning tools designed by Even Responsible Finance, Inc. and PayActive Inc. to let employees access their earned wages ahead of scheduled paychecks. This could help the many employees who live paycheck to paycheck.

Staffers can use this eight times per year, through an app. Walmart is the largest private workforce in the United States.
