Have any USA freelancers chosen to activate the National Benefits Program that Upwork offers? How do you like this program?


These are the benifits it offers:


Health insurance is a big consideration for freelancers, but it isn’t the only one. The National Benefits Platform provides open enrollment for a number of benefits, including:

  • Health insurance
  • Dental insurance
  • 401(k) plans
  • Liability insurance
  • Disability insurance
  • Term life insurance

I always thought the likes of Health Insurance, Dental Insurance etc. benefits were firmly in the Employer / Employee domain not Client / Freelancer?


This platform is for Clients and Freelancers not Employers and Employees surely?

And when you show up at the doc's office:


Crikey! Our notification system was down. We have no record of you having medical insurance.
