Since 1995, Freelancers Union has been on a mission to advocate for and support independent workers. We know that freelancers are a unique workforce with a unique set of challenges that are largely misunderstood by the rest of the world.

Insurance access

Buying insurance can be complicated and daunting. We are here to help. We offer access to curated insurance benefits for your personal and professional needs, including dental, disability, health, liability, term life and vision. Every product we feature is chosen with affordability and accessibility in mind, so you don't have to spend more than you need to. Apply today with the help of our dedicated insurance team who can help walk you through the decision-making process.


We strive to create a support network for freelancers like you. Our monthly SPARK meetups in more than 20 cities are run by freelancer leaders who understand the freelance hustle. Be a part of our community by joining a SPARK meetup in a city near you.


Freelancers Hub hosts free workshops on everything from financial management to brand-building. Whether you are getting started as a journalist or want tips on the best artist grants to apply for, there is a Hub event for you.


We know freelancers are special, and we won’t rest until everyone else does, too. From the landmark inclusion of self-employed people in unemployment insurance benefits in the CARES Act to the Freelance Isn’t Free Act in NYC, Freelancers Union has made huge gains for the freelance community. By joining the Union, you add your voice to the freelance community and give more power to our collective movement.
