Expensify.org/hunger SNAP campaign status
The number of families signing up for reimbursement has vastly outnumbered the limited funds available. Though we’re unable to provide a specific timeline on when your report will be reimbursed, we’re doing our best to drive donations and keep reimbursements moving forward. Rest assured, we’ll review every report that has been submitted per our instructions.
We're no longer accepting new participants as our focus is on reimbursing existing claims. Additionally, as of July 1, 2020, we will no longer accept new report submissions from existing policy members. Thanks for your understanding!
If you know anyone who can donate to this campaign please direct them to Expensify.org/donate.
We're currently experiencing issues with our American Express and Capital One connections. Please visit our status page for more details and to subscribe to updates.
Allowing the export of Bank Account holder's name
Currently, when personal bank accounts are added to Expensify for Indirect Reimbursement, there is no way to export the legal name of the bank account holder. This is entered into Expensify when the account is added, but after a long discussion with support, there's no way of accessing this data.
With the new Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) regulations in the UK and across the EU, it is now a requirement to add the legal account holder's name when making a transfer, and a transfer will fail if this is incorrect. These checks are compulsory from the 30th June 2020, so transfers from an exported file will begin to fail.
We are unable to mandate that an employee uses their legal name on their Expensify account, since that is linked to a SAML provider, which pulls from G Suite. Many people use a different name in their day to day lives than their legal name. For example, someone called David might use Dave on a day to day basis, but a bank transfer to Dave would fail if their legal name is David.
