Insuring Freelancers: What are we afraid of?

Gig worker? Freelancer? Independent contractor? Consultant? Whatever term we choose to use, the fact is that millions of Americans are choosing not to work within a traditional employer setting or corporate environment. But, those settings are where Americans have traditionally gained access to various insurance benefits. And, that is where we, the collective insurance industry, typically deliver our insurance products. We continue to design our pricing, underwriting, products and processes around that traditional employer/employee setting. Why are we so slow to react to the changing workforce dynamics? Why don’t we have more creative and effective insurance offerings for freelancers? What are we afraid of? This panel will discuss these topics – and outline real solutions to our industry’s slow response to this ever-growing market opportunity.
