It can be hard for freelance workers to feel a sense of security as the independence of this working model lacks the same benefit plans and health coverage corporate offices can provide. However, the Freelancers Union has implemented a new offering called the National Benefits Platform, which is working to offer more security to those who work on a job-to-job basis.
According to the website, the "Freelancers Union promotes the interests of independent workers through advocacy, education, and services." The new benefit offering expands on this as it provides comprehensive and bespoke healthcare and dental coverage throughout 50 states, starting in November.
This unique benefit plan speaks to the growing gig economy, and the consumer-focused initiates that derive from it.
