6/25/14: Freelancers Union launches National Benefits Platform in the U.S.

Almost a quarter of a million freelancers have joined Freelancers Union for free since it was founded and the site has long been working on getting group rates and benefits for those members. Now, it looks like they have arrived. I’ve not had time to explore this yet in depth yet, but the site now offers a suite of benefits for freelancers with options for retirement, health, disability, term life and more.┬áThe health plan section for my area is not online yet, but the screen tells me they will be up and running in time for open enrollment in the fall. Which, isn’t that far in the future. The other options appear to be functioning now.

If you’d like to learn more about the program, start with the post about the National Benefits Platform for freelancers at FreelancersUnion.org. To explore the plans available in your area, visit the freelancers union benefits page and type in your zip code to get started.

Oh, and while you’re there, check out the benefits tab at the top left of any screen on the site. The discounts section is definitely worth a visit.
