5. Request Payment

No financial transactions take place through WAGENCY but you can request and record payments, and send reminders to institutions if payment is overdue. As long as you enter the program's start date in a Fee Request, WAGENCY will alert you if payment hasn't been recorded within 30 days of completing the work and prompt you to send a payment request. This timeframe complies with the Freelance Isn’t Free Act which protects freelance workers from non-payment and protracted or reduced payment by New York City businesses.
