Your compensation cycle depends on your position. For professionals working directly with individuals in the field, billable compensation information received prior to the cutoff will be processed within the week. If received after the cutoff, processing will occur the following week. Before accepting a referral assignment, an hourly, flat or project rate is established. This can be negotiated and may change from contract to contract. Compensation may be received through E-Pay (electronic pay) so you can have the compensation directly deposited into your bank account, or mailed through the United States Post Office.
