The way people work is changing. In the past, traditional benefits covered people against emergencies and disasters, but in a growing gig economy, those safety nets aren't always there. Let's look at the way work and savings have changed and what we can do to shift the landscape for financial stability.
As a freelancer, self-employed business owner, gig worker, or consultant, you may be tempted to skip health insurance costs just for this year. After all, you’re totally healthy, right? If you aren’t covering a spouse or children, the urge to skip out could get even stronger.
We’ll keep this brief 😉 Today, we’re launching the first Catch feature in health insurance — Health Explorer. For anyone who doesn’t receive health insurance from an employer, this should be your first stop.
Today, we’re excited to announce a new way to get personalized, detailed recommendations on how to build and manage your safety net and benefits plan.
If this is your first year filing taxes with more than just your employer’s W2 (or without an employer at all), it’s probably keeping you up at night. Self-employment tax. Income tax. Quarterly payments. Penalties. Filing the first time can be so stressful that you put it off until the last minute or worse, don’t file at all.
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You’ve always dreamed of working for yourself, and you finally take the plunge, expecting the freedom of flexible hours and the glory of unlimited earning potential. You expect it to be your best life.
Welcome back, friends. In this latest exploration of Open Enrollment for 2019, we thought we’d take a deeper dive in to the types of plans available in the marketplace and the natural sidekick of that - the costs associated with health insurance.
It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning, the red cups are back at Starbucks, scarves and boots are back in style, and people are talking about Open Enrollment Period (OEP). Ok, maybe you haven’t seen the last one, but it’s pretty important.
In our first post of this series, The Truth About Freelancing: Dollars and Doubt, we talked about making money and how to handle doubt as a freelancer. In this second installment, we're going to talk about risk and resiliency.
As we change what work looks like, we must rethink how to classify and categorize it in a way that serves people better.
