1099 & Gig Income Verification

Non-W2 income encompasses a wide range of earnings outside traditional employment, including income earned from popular gig platforms like Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash. This category extends far beyond these more familiar income streams to also include income from self-employment (construction workers, hairdressers, etc.), investment activities (interest, dividends, etc.), and personal transfers (e.g., alimony, gifts, and contributions).

Effectively verifying this type of income requires access to data from a diverse collection of sources with the user's permission. These sources can include gig platforms themselves, traditional banks and credit unions, and even digital wallet providers like Venmo and PayPal.

Enter SteadyIQ.

We’ve solved this problem with our flagship solution, the Income Passport. With access to deposit accounts and work platforms, we generate a comprehensive "digital paystub" to cover previously-uncoverable 1099/gig income.

For the first time, government agencies and financial institutions can gain a real-time understanding of non-W2 income, unlocking access for the one in three workers who now work in non-traditional ways.

We empower our partners to quickly and easily generate comprehensive digital “paystubs” covering all gig and 1099 income. This real-time income verification unlocks access to public benefits and financial products (e.g. credit card, mortgage) for non-standard workers. It also minimizes manual dependency, reduces fraud, and eases cost and burden for administrators.




We provide user-friendly self-service dashboards that allow our partners to easily track the impact of any program, automatically gathering financial data, sending surveys, and collecting testimonials. This makes for powerful presentations, compelling communications, and the evidence needed to take a program from pilot to policy.

"This is about harnessing the potential of technology to expand economic opportunity for a segment of the population that is exploding but often struggles to access credit. It reflects the fact that the way financial institutions verify income history is out of step with the way that a growing number of
Americans work and earn."

Derrick Bailey

President of Telhio Credit Union


“Claimants that would normally wait weeks or months, are getting paid in days or even hours… Steady’s Income Verification is a great gatekeeper and great validator. Steady allows rapid decisioning for people who deserve it, and they are a deterrent to fraud. The old way was a sieve for fraud.”

Richard Pierce

Louisiana Workforce Commission, Chief Project Management Office


“The best way to build tools that support workers is to include those workers in the development process. By listening to the insights, perspectives, and recommendations of workers, Steady has created a tool that will help millions of people take control of their own data and access critical benefits to support themselves and their families.”

Angela Vogel

Union Leader, Philadelphia’s Drivers Union


“The past year has revealed the profound misalignment between the realities of the labor market, and outdated infrastructure that the government uses to verify benefits eligibility. By putting data in the hands of workers, we can modernize the process to boost payment accuracy and better serve a growing and critical segment of the economy.”

Adrian Haro

CEO, The Workers Lab


“This is a win-win for the state and for workers. I know for sure that the national and state job market will continue to change in the future. Equipped with solutions like the Income Passport, state can stay ahead of worker’s needs and better manage government resources, both in times of growth and in times of crisis.”

Secretary of the Alabama Department of Labor, Board of Directors, National Association of State Workforce Agencies
