Working in the gig economy means you do not have a boss hanging over your shoulder and you have a tremendous amount of freedom. You work whenever you want which is typically what draws people to rideshare and food delivery to name a few. However, you do give up a lot especially when it comes to benefits!
Recently, I discovered a new company that is offering help to gig workers for a monthly charge. The company is called Kover and I have no affiliation with them but I do find that what they offer could be helpful to many. Their quoting system is based on your data that comes directly from Uber, Lyft, Amazon Flex, Instacart, Postmates, Shipt, and others. Their services include things like sick leave, health insurance, help with deactivation, record keeping, and more. One of the most interesting benefits is income replacement if you are temporarily deactivated from an app. All in all, I believe it is worth your time to check them out!
