Freelance Benefits Summary
Inexpensive for individual; very expensive as you add 1 or more family members.
There isn't one. Contract workers are left in the cold.
Solid healthcare, vision and dental coverage. I don't need to pay a lot out of pocket each month, as CC pays most. Ten days of PTO yearly (increases over time). Wish there was offsite flexibility.
The best thing is that sick leave exists. The worst thing is that the health insurance is incredibly minimal and not worth it, and the 401K match only happens if you are working for them at the end of the calendar year.
There really aren't benefits for their contract workers. It takes a really really long time to qualify for vacation and sick pay. The health insurance is bottom of the barrel.
It doesn't really cover anything... unless you are about to die. Health care is a total joke in America. We should join every other developing nation on earth providing free healthcare to all.
compensation as at the very minimum it can possibly be, and they only give what is legally required by them state by state, you have to work much longer hours to get any reasonable benefits.
Health insurance is terrible, doctor's offices laugh when we ask if they take "Benefits in a Card"
The cost of the benefits package is definitely a plus. I didn't get an opportunity to use the benefits package but it definitely is a great option for a freelance designer.
It takes a full year before you qualify for a single sick day. The insurance plan is the bare minimum required by Obamacare. You only get three paid holidays per year, and then only if you work either the day before or after the holiday.
