Instant Pay Card

Rebranding effective February 2020

The ALINE ADP paycard is in the process of being rebranded as the Wiseley Pay by ADP pay card. Berkeley will continue to issue the ALINE paycard and provide the employee with a notice of change and revised privacy policy. For detailed information, please review the ADP change to Wisley pdf


The instant paycard is a pay option that is initiated by Berkeley Regional Services after an exceptional pay circumstance has been identified and discussed with the applicable employee. This method provides same-day payment (if submitted by UCPath deadlines) via a temporary instant pay card to eligible employees (with signed consent) who are not paid on their regular payday and may experience financial hardship if they can’t wait for off-cycle processing. Funds are available in the evening on the day of the request (subject to UCPath Confirmation). This instant pay card is not for reoccurring pay (known as the personalized pay card).


Non-represented employees with a valid social security number and complete position & job (in UCPath system) are eligible to receive missed pay on an instant pay card if a same day payment is required and cannot be accommodated via an Off cycle check or regular pay cycle pay processing.
