There is hope, as the federal government has begun to explore alternatives for getting payments into people’s hands faster. Ingo Money has been fortunate to offer up our disbursements marketplace with recipient choice as an alternative for modern payments in the future. Ingo Money’s solution is transformational on two fronts.
Our disbursements marketplace goes beyond ACH and checks for both banked and unbanked consumers, connecting all of the relevant rails [and] delivering more options and real-time funds access to accounts of the recipients’ choosing — to pretty much anything in the consumers’ wallets, including existing bank, prepaid [or] mobile wallet accounts or … cash from retail locations.
Our … solution not only eliminates the expensive and slow paper check as a primary disbursement vehicle but offers [the government] an ‘always up-to-date,’ one-to-one relationship with individual recipients. … Our platform does not solve for eligibility criteria and who should receive the payment, [but] it does facilitate the remaining path to a modern digital government disbursements experience by handling recipient engagement, authentication, risk management, payment routing, settlement [and] reporting and reconcilement. What this pandemic has clearly shown is that modernizing government disbursements is now a priority.”
